BMC Genomics 14:566. 2013..Understanding the sex determination mechanism and developing sex-associated markers will shorten the time for the development of monosex female production, thus decreasing the costs of farming...
- Seasonal variations in clock-gene expression in Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar)Andrew Davie
Institute of Aquaculture, University of Stirling, Stirling, UK
Chronobiol Int 26:379-95. 2009..It is thus proposed that the clock-gene system is actively expressed in Atlantic salmon, and, furthermore, as has been reported in homeothermic vertebrates, it appears that clock expression is daylength-dependent...
