• Beyond large-effect loci: Large-scale GWAS reveals a mixed large-effect and polygenic architecture for age at maturity of Atlantic salmon 

      Sinclair-Waters, Marion; Ødegård, Jørgen; Korsvoll, Sven Arild; Moen, Thomas; Lien, Sigbjørn; Primmer, Craig R.; Barson, Nicola (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      Background. Understanding genetic architecture is essential for determining how traits will change in response to evolutionary processes such as selection, genetic drift and/or gene flow. In Atlantic salmon, age at maturity ...
    • Dissecting the loci underlying maturation timing in Atlantic salmon using haplotype and multi-SNP based association methods 

      Sinclair-Waters, Marion; Nome, Torfinn; Wang, Jing; Lien, Sigbjørn; Kent, Matthew Peter; Sægrov, Harald; Florø-Larsen, Bjørn; Bolstad, Geir Hysing; Primmer, Craig R. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2022)
      Characterizing the role of different mutational effect sizes in the evolution of fitness-related traits has been a major goal in volutionary biology for a century. Such characterization in a diversity of systems, both model ...
    • Functional Annotation of All Salmonid Genomes (FAASG): an international initiative supporting future salmonid research, conservation and aquaculture 

      Macqueen, Daniel J.; Primmer, Craig R.; Houston, Ross D.; Nowak, Barbara F.; Bernatchez, Louis; Bergseth, Steinar; Davidson, William S.; Gallardo-Escárate, Cristian; Goldammer, Tom; Guiguen, Yann; Iturra, Patricia; Kijas, James W.; Koop, Ben F.; Lien, Sigbjørn; Maass, Alejandro; Martin, Samuel A. M.; McGinnity, Philip; Montecino, Martin; Naish, Kerry; Nichols, Krista M.; Ólafsson, Kristinn; Omholt, Stig William; Palti, Yniv; Plastow, Graham S.; Rexroad, Caird E. 3rd; Rise, Matthew L.; Ritchie, Rachael J.; Sandve, Simen Rød; Schulte, Patricia M.; Tello, Alfredo; Vidal, Rodrigo; Vik, Jon Olav; Wargelius, Anna; Yáñez, José Manuel (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      We describe an emerging initiative - the ‘Functional Annotation of All Salmonid Genomes’ (FAASG), which will leverage the extensive trait diversity that has evolved since a whole genome duplication event in the salmonid ...
    • The structural variation landscape in 492 Atlantic salmon genomes 

      Bertolotti, Alicia C.; Layer, Ryan M.; Gundappa, Manu Kumar; Gallagher, Michael D.; Pehlivanoglu, Ege; Nome, Torfinn; Robledo, Diego; Kent, Matthew Peter; Røsæg, Line Lieblein; Holen, Matilde Mengkrog; Mulugeta, Teshome Dagne; Ashton, Thomas J.; Hindar, Kjetil; Sægrov, Harald; Florø-Larsen, Bjørn; Erkinaro, Jaakko; Primmer, Craig R.; Bernatchez, Louis; Martin, Samuel A.M.; Johnston, Ian A.; Sandve, Simen Rød; Lien, Sigbjørn; Macqueen, Daniel J. (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      Structural variants (SVs) are a major source of genetic and phenotypic variation, but remain challenging to accurately type and are hence poorly characterized in most species. We present an approach for reliable SV discovery ...
    • The chromosome-level genome assembly of european grayling reveals aspects of a unique genome evolution process within salmonids 

      Savilammi, Tiina; Primmer, Craig R.; Varadharajan, Srinidhi; Guyomard, Rene; Guiguen, Yann; Sandve, Simen Rød; Asbjørn Vøllestad, L.; Vøllestad, Leif Asbjørn; Papakostas, Spiros; Lien, Sigbjørn (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019)
