Our research

Family Production

Breeding the perfect prawn

The Family Production work package focuses on producing the families needed to develop the specific phenotypic and genetic resources required within the project.

Genomic Prediction

A genomic selection breeding approach

The Genonomic Prediction work package involves the estimation of genetic parameters (heritability, genetic correlations, GxE) along with the development and evaluation of advanced genomic selection and breeding techniques.
