Welcome to the home of the WGS-Aqua project. This is a BBSRC/NERC funded project to establish a repository for whole genome sequence data for a number of key pathogens that affect the aquaculture industry, including Vibrio anguilarum, Flavobacterium psychrophilum, Yersinia Ruckeri, Renibacterium Salmoninarum and Koi Herpes Virus (KHV). We are building a broad network of academics and stakeholders in aquaculture disease management, molecular epidemiology, ecological modelling and bioinformatics, both within the UK and abroad, to identify a common set of tools and standards to optimally exploit whole genome sequence (WGS) data of aquaculture pathogens for disease management.
Information of the various pathogens being studied by WGS-Aqua can be found at Pathogen Schemes. This page also includes any resources developed as a part of each project.
