Genofisk WP-P5 Mapping and breeding: Mapping of Quantitative Trait Loci (QTL) for resistance against nodavirus in Atlantic cod

Nøkkeldata

Startdato 1. januar 2007
Sluttdato 31. desember 2009
Finansiert av Genofisk program within FUGE, Nofima (cod breeding program)
I samarbeid med Cigene

The main objective is to increase knowledge of disease resistance in cod through generation of genomic data and QTL analyses and to apply this in a genetic improvement program.

Molecular marker (microsatellite and SNP) information and challenge test survival data from family material from national breeding program for cod are combined to identify QTL's for nodavirus resistance in Atlantic cod.

The ultimate goal is to use the QTL information in marker-assisted selection programs (MAS) to improve the selection for disease resistance, which is difficult and expensive trait to improve by conventional selection.
