At the helm of this project is CGRU molecular biologist Geoff Waldbieser.
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.
In a unique application, a bacterial artificial chromosome (BAC) fingerprinting technique was adapted for high-throughput analysis by Sylvie Quiniou, a CGRU molecular biologist, in conjunction with MSAGL.
