Salmon Genome in Final Phases of Completion - BC

VANCOUVER - (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) -- The International Cooperation to Sequence the Atlantic Salmon Genome (ICSASG, the "Cooperation") has awarded the Phase II contract for next-generation sequencing and analysis of the Atlantic salmon genome to the J. Craig Venter Institute (JCVI) in Rockville, Maryland.

The JCVI will be sequencing the salmon genome using next-generation technologies, including assembly to integrate Sanger and next-generation sequence, and comparative genomics.

This effort is expected to generate a high-quality resource for those responsible for the management of...............
