Development of genetic markers to assess disease resistance in the eastern oyster
Project Completion Report submitted to USDA-NRAC (2008)
Project Title: “Development of genetic markers to assess disease resistance in the eastern oyster”
Reporting Period: February 2005 – January 2008 Funding Level: $128,486
1. To demonstrate seed originating from local wild oysters, that have experienced heavy disease (Dermo) pressure, could significantly contribute to the development of disease resistance in cultured oysters.
2. To genetically characterize regional oysters (C. virginica) that are putatively resistant (more tolerant) to Dermo, in order to development genetic markers and to better understand mechanism involved in immunity.
3. To communicate with northeastern hatchery operations and help them to identify local, potentially Dermo resistant broodstocks.
