By using several selected microsatellites as DNA markers, Waldbieser's team was able to identify the parents of egg masses, or "spawns," collected from ponds, and gave CGRU researchers a tool to identify which individual catfish reproduced each year.
This will permit the CGRU team to compare the catfish genome with the sequenced genomes of other fish or mammals.
Ultimately, the CGRU researchers hope to have a fully sequenced catfish genome that will simplify identification of gene variants found in fish that show improved performance.
