Genetics and genomics of robustness and adaptation traits in fish (CR2-2014-10-GA-1)
Key activities and required skills
Traits characterizing adaptation to changing environments (water quality, food...) are highly critical in farmed fish. For the production of many carnivorous species, adaptation to plant-based diets, for example is a challenge for the sustainability of the production system.
The recent development of high throughput genomic tools and the existence of original genetic resources offer new opportunities to explore genetic determinants of robustness in fish. The successful candidate will develop research to elaborate an operational description of the genetic structure of phenotypic plasticity and robustness for further development of robustness selection methodologies adapted to the fish selection processes. Skills in (high throughput) genetic and genomic data analysis and in statistics, knowledge in quantitative genetics and animal breeding as well as the ability to work in a team would be desirable.
