Project introduction

Our aim is find a way to overproduce an antibiotic that will help with the amoebic gill disease (AGD) in atlantic salmon(salmo salar) a disease caused by the Neoparamoeba perurans. It causes mucus build up in the gills of salmon and untreated results in destruction of gill tissue. Our project consists of establishing a model which will allow detection of behavioral changes in a salmon population and engineering of an organism to overproduce an antibiotic that will help with curing salmon diagnosed with AGD.
