WGS-Aqua Network Launched

posted Jun 10, 2015, 6:35 AM by John Bostock
The WGS-Aqua project is a UK BBSRC/NERC funded project to establish a repository for whole genome sequence data for a number of key pathogens that affect the aquaculture industry, including Vibrio anguilarum, Flavobacterium psychrophilum and Koi Herpes Virus. We are building a broad network of academics and stakeholders in aquaculture disease management, molecular epidemiology, ecological modelling and bioinformatics, both within the UK and abroad, to identify a common set of tools and standards to optimally exploit whole genome sequence (WGS) data of aquaculture pathogens for disease management. -
