Researchers with Fisheries and Oceans Canada have confirmed that farmed salmon are interbreeding with wild Atlantic salmon in rivers along the south coast of Newfoundland.
With support from the GRDI, scientists have developed a cost-effective, non-invasive method of parentage-based tagging from genotypes of hatchery broodstock.
With the help of funding from the GRDI, scientists at Fisheries and Oceans Canada have gathered data to identify which salmon are wild and which are from a hatchery, focusing on Chinook salmon populations that spawn in rivers along the west coast of Vancouver Island.
With funding from the GRDI, scientists from Natural Resources Canada and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency developed a molecular test that identifies the presence of living nematodes.
With support from the GRDI, researchers at the Public Health Agency of Canada have developed a genomics-based tool that is changing the way authorities have investigated incidents of salmonellosis for close to 100 years.
The Sanger Institute, one of the biggest and most influential centres for genomics research in the world, is working to incorporate NG-STAR into a broader gonorrhea sequencing project underway at Sanger headquarters at Oxford University in the UK.
