Since the first symposium of its kind in 2009, the application of genomics in aquaculture has matured as its own research field. The Genomics in Aquaculture (GIA) series of symposia have become a solid forum for presentation and discussion of the most recent advances in this area.
We are happy to announce that the 5th Genomics in Aquaculture symposium (GIA2018) will take place in the Algarve (Portugal) from 21 to 23 March 2018.
The GIA2018 will include all farmed fish and shellfish species, new species with aquaculture potential and production-related species (e.g. microalgae). We welcome oral and poster presentations covering the application of -omics approaches within the following topics:
1. Nutrition and growth
2. Stress and immune response
3. Reproduction and breeding
4. Toxicology and environmental impact
5. Zebrafish as a model for aquaculture
