Project Details

Early mortality syndrome (EMS) causes massive mortality to many salmonid species in Lakes Michigan and Ontario. In this project researchers studied the etiology of EMS using an extensive fish health investigation and novel cDNA microarray (“gene chip”) technology, which has revolutionized human disease research and diagnosis. The same cDNA microarray would be a novel resource to study fish health, toxicology, and nutrition.
