Salmon lice as models for understanding life history evolution of parasites

Salmon lice represent an important problem both in relation to fish farming and to the conservation of wild salmonids. It is now estimated that at least 95 % of all salmon lice eggs in the sea come from farmed fish. The majority of salmon lice have ther efore changed their resource base from wi...

HAVBRUKS-Havbruk - en næring i vekst

Transmission and reservoirs of Francisella piscicida. Implications for wild and farmed cod.

A new species of Francisella (F. piscicida), causing mortality in farmed cod (Gadus morhua), was isolated autumn 2004 from farmed cod in Rogaland. In 2005 this bacterium was isolated from several cod farms in Rogaland, Hordaland, Møre og Romsdal, Nordland and Denmark and from Atlantic salmon in ...

Cellular interactions underlying organization of cortical circuits

A major question in neuroscience is how appropriate connections are formed when the brain develops and how these connections are modified with experience. It is well established that neural circuits are fine-tuned by experience during 'critical periods' i n early postnatal life. In the visual sys...

Identification of molecules involved in the generation of the MHC class II peptide loading compartment.

Visualization of vesicular trafficking has become possible by the rapid development of imaging techniques that utilize fast computers and fast on line imaging systems. Biologically we have developed a system for studying trafficking events in the immune specific intracellular pathway towards the...

Studies of salmon phagocytic cells - key cells in cellular immune responses.

We propose to investigate, using functional genomics, the relationship between well-known immunostimulants, activation and function of salmon phagocytic cells. The new input to fish immunology is the use of isolated specific cell populations, especially n eutrophils, a salmonid cell line and phag...
