The generated results from the sequencing of the salmon louse genome will be made publicly available. These data will play a major role in the development of salmon louse vaccine and chemical delousing treatment.
The salmon louse genome is sequenced and initial analyses have been performed.
The parties involved in the sequencing (Institute of Marine Research, University of Bergen, Max Planck Institute for Molecular Genetics, Uni Research, Marine Harvest and The Fishery and Aquaculture Industry Research Fund) have decided make the generated results accessible to all research environments. This will provide an important resource that will improve future scientific progress. Access to the results will be given at certain conditions to a safeguard the scientific interests of the sequencing partners.
