This project includes an evaluation of broodstock development, a high-quality genome sequence of rohu, and the identification of genome-wide single nucleotide protein markers for broodstock selection programs. The research will be beneficial by making available genetically improved rohu strains as quality broodstock for better seed production, understanding impacts of species on pond productivity, and improving food and nutrition security in Bangladesh.
