Salmon (Salmo and Oncorhynchus spp) are economically lucrative, ecologically critical, and culturally significant organisms. Despite these qualities, however, salmon stocks worldwide have experienced steady declines including the widespread collapse of wild Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar). Developing genomic tools to interrogate salmon stock health would provide resource managers with the means to better predict salmon returns, leading to harvesting regulations that are both ecologically and economically favourable. To this end, I am querying publicly available Salmonid expression datasets for use in a meta-analysis to identify potential genetic markers indicative of particular conditions (for example, hypoxia or infection).
