Knockout omega-3 genes to perturb LC-PUFA metabolism in Salmon

The aim of this investigation is to understand molecular mechanisms of PUFA biosynthesis and regulation in order to enable the sustainable use of vegetable oils in aquafeeds as current sources of fish oils are unable to meet increasing demands for omega-3 PUFAs. By generating gene knockouts, we would like to study the genes that are crucial for multi-tissue synthesis of PUFA synthesis in vivo.
