Future Genomics Technologies joins ParaFishControl

1 April 2018, Future Genomics Technologies joins ParaFishControl, an EU Horizon 2020-funded research project dedicated to increasing the sustainability and competitiveness of European aquaculture. FG-Tech joined the project retroactively on 1 October 2017, which coincides with the exit of ZF-screens from this project. In ParaFishControl, FG-Tech will assemble the genomes of multiple fish parasites using Illumina and Nanopore sequencing technologies and study the interactions between the parasites and their hosts via Illumina RNA sequencing.
