Project Description

I am a postdoctoral fellow researching the adaptation potential of rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) to climate change. This research is funded by a generous grant from Genome Canada (Genome BC) and is in collaboration with many academic and non-governmental organizations, including the University of Victoria, University of Calgary, Carleton University, University of Ottawa, and the Freshwater Fisheries Society of BC. We are in essence trying to determine which strains and natural populations of rainbow trout are adapting to climate change the best. My primary role will be in bioinformatics and genomics, but I also hope to do some field sampling as well.
