Large-scale Population-Genomic Analyses of Economically Important Marine Species

Project Type: Genomic Classification, Prediction
Area/Sector: Fisheries
Company/Partner: Department of Fisheries and Oceans
Academic Institution: Dalhousie University
Lead Investigator: Dr. Rob Beiko

Through this project, DeepSense will allow the Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO) to innovate the use of genomic data towards management objectives and develop the necessary tools to integrate whole-genome data into management and conservation efforts.

Given the potential of large genomic datasets to transform management strategies, we will explore the potential application of high-resolution population-genomic data towards regulatory practice, balancing fine-grained structure and the need for practical management strategies.  The project will leverage large genomic datasets already being collected through both university and government partnerships.
