Homeologous regions in the Atlantic salmon genome
Homeologous regions in the Atlantic salmon genome subdivided into 98 collinear blocks along the 29 salmon chromosomes (Source: Nature 2016 doi:10.1038/nature17164) .

The Norwegian University of Life Sciences (NMBU) seeks to contribute to the well-being of the planet through interdisciplinary research generating innovations in food, health, environmental protection, climate and sustainable use of natural resources. Organized within of the Department of Animal and Aquacultural Sciences, Faculty for BioSciences, CIGENE seeks to develop a deep understanding of genomics as it relates to aquaculture and agriculture species, and has a specific focus on the genomics of Atlantic salmon and other salmonids. We achieve this by working closely with both researcher and industry partners, and by leveraging state of the art tools and resources in genotyping, sequencing, bioinformatics and systems biology.
