Research Project: Generating an Optical Map of the Rainbow Trout Genome Using the Irys System from BioNano Genomics

Location: Cool and Cold Water Aquaculture Research

Project Number: 8082-31000-012-07-S
Project Type: Non-Assistance Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Jul 1, 2016
End Date: Sep 30, 2018

Objective:
To generate an optical map of the rainbow trout genome using the Irys System from BioNano Genomics.

Approach:
We will use the Irys System from BioNano Genomics to generate an optical map of the rainbow trout genome, which will be used to validate the scaffolds’ order and orientation in the new rainbow trout chromosome maps and bridge and merge the existing scaffolds into super- and mega-scaffolds using the BioNano publicly available software.
