In the Press: Project CrispResist
Assoc. Professor Nick Robinson has recently been in the press for a project (CrispResist – for more details, click here) investigating what it is about the genes of various species of Pacific salmon that makes them more resistant to salmon lice compared to Atlantic salmon. Together with researchers from the University of Bergen and Nofima, Nick will then apply this knowledge in research aimed at gene-editing the eggs of Atlantic salmon using CRISPR-Cas9 to try and increase the resistance of farmed salmon to salmon lice.
