Publication for Functional Annotation of All Salmonid Genomes

FAASG citations


Genomic Predictions and Genome Wide Association Study of Resistance Against Piscirickettsia salmonis in Coho Salmon (Oncorhynchus kisutch) Using ddRAD Sequencing

PMCID: 5873909
PMID: 29440129
DOI: 10.1534/g3.118.200053

[…] in the near future, further functional studies for a better understanding of p. salmonis resistance and other complex traits in salmonids will be facilitated by the international initiative on the functional annotation of all salmonid genomes, faasg ()., we have evaluated different gs models, and demonstrated that the use of genomic prediction is a feasible strategy for the improvement […]


De novo transcriptome assembly, annotation and comparison of four ecological and evolutionary model salmonid fish species

PMCID: 5759245
PMID: 29310597
DOI: 10.1186/s12864-017-4379-x

[…] evolutionary and fisheries research. in addition, they provide a solid platform for generating genomic resources for other salmonid species. the latter point forms the primary objective of the faasg (functional annotation of all salmonid genomes), a recent initiative developed by the icsasg, which aims to generate functionally annotated resources for nine species of salmonids and integrate […]


Genotype Imputation To Improve the Cost Efficiency of Genomic Selection in Farmed Atlantic Salmon

PMCID: 5386885
PMID: 28250015
DOI: 10.1534/g3.117.040717

[…] (potentially using low-cost sequencing methods), and/or prioritization of putative functional variants in the snp panel used for prediction. the latter may be enhanced by initiatives such as the functional annotation of all salmonid genomes (faasg; )., genotype imputation approaches were tested in a sample of atlantic salmon from a commercial breeding program, and the efficacy of using […]
