6th International Symposium on Genomics in Aquaculture GIA 2020

Wednesday 22nd April 2020, 8:30am to Friday 24th April 2020, 6:30pm

Granada, Spain

The 21st century can already be considered the century of Genomics. Following the line marked in previous meetings, the sixth symposium of Genomics in Aquaculture (GIA2020) aims to be a platform to transmit these advances in Genomics as well as its application in Aquaculture.

The development of new techniques of massive sequencing, the storage capacity and data analysis through new bioinformatic tools, as well as the great information available, have facilitated access to genomic studies to a large number of researchers.

In recent years, new approaches have appeared in this discipline such as epigenomics, metagenomics or gene editing, which have opened new horizons in this field.

Simultaneously, the aquaculture sector has also had great advances such as the development of new culturing techniques, the improvement in nutrition or the application of tools for the control and prevention of diseases. All this has allowed the farming of new species that until recently had not been considered available.
