Systems biology for salmon farming is what I do. I lead the DigiSal project (http://tinyurl.com/digisal), whose full title is "Towards the Digital Salmon: From a reactive to a pre-emptive research strategy in aquaculture". DigiSal is part of Digital Life, the first call dedicated to systems biology by the Research Council of Norway. I'm also one of the lead modellers in GenoSysFat (http://tinyurl.com/genosysfat), working to improve the omega-3 content of salmon farmed on sustainable feeds by
Salmon farmed on modern feeds contains less of the healthy, long-chain fatty acids (EPA and DHA) than before. Up until the turn of the millennium, farmed salmon were fed fish oil as a replacement for their omega-3 rich natural prey. However, fish oil is now a scarce resource, and more than half of the fat in modern feeds comes from plant oils that are inexpensive, but devoid of long-chain omega-3 fatty acids. How can we increase the omega-3 content of salmon on sustainable feeds?
One option is
