  • Bridle, Andrew R.; Koop, Ben F.; Nowak, Barbara F. (Public Library of Science, 2012-07-12)
    Simple cost-effective bacterins are the earliest and most successfully used commercial vaccines in fish. In particular, those prepared from Yersinia ruckeri have proven effective at controlling Enteric Red Mouth Disease ...
  • Moen, Thomas; Hayes, Ben; Baranski, Matthew; Berg, Paul R; Kjøglum, Sissel; Koop, Ben F; Davidson, Willie S; Omholt, Stig W; Lien, Sigbjørn (BioMed Central, 2008-05-15)
    Background: The Atlantic salmon is a species of commercial and ecological significance. Like other salmonids, the species displays residual tetrasomy and a large difference in recombination rate between sexes. Linkage ...
  • de Boer, Johan G; Yazawa, Ryosuke; Davidson, William S; Koop, Ben F (BioMed Central, 2007-11-16)
    Background: Several genome duplications have occurred in the evolutionary history of teleost fish. In returning to a stable diploid state, the polyploid genome reorganized, and large portions are lost, while the fish ...
  • Davidson, William S.; Koop, Benjamin F.; Jones, Steven J.M.; Iturra, Patricia; Vidal, Rodrigo; Maass, Alejandro; Jonassen, Inge; Lien, Sigbjorn; Omholt, Stig W. (BioMed Central, 2010-09-29)
    The International Collaboration to Sequence the Atlantic Salmon Genome (ICSASG) will produce a genome sequence that identifies and physically maps all genes in the Atlantic salmon genome and acts as a reference sequence ...
  • von Schaulburg, Kristian R; Rise, Matthew L; Cooper, Glenn A; Brown, Gordon D; Gibbs, A Ross; Nelson, Colleen C; Davidson, William S; Koop, Ben F (BioMed Central, 2005-09-15)
    Background: We have developed and fabricated a salmonid microarray containing cDNAs representing 16,006 genes. The genes spotted on the array have been stringently selected from Atlantic salmon and rainbow trout expressed ...
  • Jantzen, Stuart G.; Sutherland, Ben J.G.; Minkley, David R.; Koop, Benjamin F. (BioMed Central, 2011-07-28)
    Background: The increased accessibility of gene expression tools has enabled a wide variety of experiments utilizing transcriptomic analyses. As these tools increase in prevalence, the need for improved standardization ...
  • Montpetit, Alexandre; Wilson, Michael D; Chevrette, Mario; Koop, Ben F; Sinnett, Daniel (BioMed Central, 2003-07-23)
    Background: The pufferfish Fugu rubripes (Fugu) with its compact genome is increasingly recognized as an important vertebrate model for comparative genomic studies. In particular, large regions of conserved synteny between ...
  • Jantzen, Stuart G.; Sanderson, Dan S.; Von Schalburg, Kristian Robert; Yasuike, Motoshige; Marass, Francesco; Koop, Benjamin F. (BioMed Central, 2011-03-29)
    Background: Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar L.) is an environmentally and economically important organism and its gene content is reasonably well characterized. From a transcriptional standpoint, it is important to characterize ...
  • Koop, Ben (2013-07-02)
    2013 interview with Professor Ben Koop on open access
  • Wilson, Michael D; Chevrette, Mario; Koop, Ben F.; Sinnett, Daniel; Montpetit, Alexandre (BMC Genomics, 2003-05)
    Background The pufferfish Fugu rubripes (Fugu) with its compact genome is increasingly recognized as an important vertebrate model for comparative genomic studies. In particular, large regions of conserved synteny between ...
