The brown trout genome has been fully sequenced!

The Wellcome Sanger Institute today announced that they have sequenced’ the brown trout genome. Genetic analysis is a crucial part of understanding how organisms function. The secrets to their unique abilities could be hidden in their DNA. So far only a tiny number of organisms have been analysed to this level of detail, but the brown trout, Salmo trutta, is so amazingly adaptable that understanding its genome may hold answers to helping the species survive climate change and other challenges.
