Genomics Division

Genomics Division applies molecular analyses to ecological questions and the study of structure, function and evolution of genes and genomes relevant to aquaculture.


The Genomics Research Division explores genomes and transcriptomes using high throughput DNA sequencing at our advanced DeepSeq facility

Research areas include epigenetics, transcriptomics and proteomics of immunity and growth in aquaculture species. Experimental research is used to study the reproductive and developmental biology of aquatic species. Zebrafish is the major organism model for functional studies. 

Another primary objective is to explore the distribution of genetic variation in natural populations and how it is affected by environmental change. Molecular markers are used to study behaviour, biodiversity, and adaptive variation.
