About

Our research is focused on the analysis of molecular biological effects of combined environmental stress on growth and immune defense in locally farmed fish. In a genome wide approach, we compare the functional diversity and gene regulation in fish under optimal and stress conditions. This will contribute to the characterization of differences in adaptation potential of fishes. Identified molecular indicators for stress detection will be used to develop facile diagnostic tests well-functioning in practical fish aquaculture. Our analyses promote the development of locally adapted fish lines characterized by robustness and without disadvantages in economically important traits.
