      Teleost fishes constitute the most species-rich vertebrate clade and exhibit extensive genetic and phenotypic variation, including diverse immune defense strategies. The genomic basis of a particularly aberrant strategy ...
    • Evolutionary redesign of the Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua L.) Toll-like receptor repertoire by gene losses and expansions 

      Solbakken, Monica Hongrø; Tørresen, Ole Kristian; Nederbragt, Alexander Johan; Seppola, Marit; Gregers, Tone Fredsvik; Jakobsen, Kjetill Sigurd; Jentoft, Sissel (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2016)
      Genome sequencing of the teleost Atlantic cod demonstrated loss of the Major Histocompatibility Complex (MHC) class II, an extreme gene expansion of MHC class I and gene expansions and losses in the innate pattern recognition ...
    • Genome architecture enables local adaptation of Atlantic cod despite high connectivity 

      Barth, Julia Maria Isis; Berg, Paul Ragnar; Jonsson, Per R; Bonanomi, Sara; Corell, Hanna; Hemmer-Hansen, Jakob; Jakobsen, Kjetill Sigurd; Johannesson, Kerstin; Jorde, Per Erik; Knutsen, Halvor; Moksnes, Per-Olav; Star, Bastiaan; Stenseth, Nils Christian; Svedang, Henrik; Jentoft, Sissel; Andre, Carl (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      Adaptation to local conditions is a fundamental process in evolution; however, mechanisms maintaining local adaptation despite high gene flow are still poorly understood. Marine ecosystems provide a wide array of diverse ...
    • Genomic characterization of the Atlantic cod sex-locus 

      Star, Bastiaan; Tørresen, Ole Kristian; Nederbragt, Alexander Johan; Jakobsen, Kjetill Sigurd; Pampoulie, Christophe; Jentoft, Sissel (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2016)
      A variety of sex determination mechanisms can be observed in evolutionary divergent teleosts. Sex determination is genetic in Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua), however the genomic location or size of its sex-locus is unknown. ...
    • Linking species habitat and past palaeoclimatic events to evolution of the teleost innate immune system 

      Solbakken, Monica Hongrø; Voje, Kjetil L.; Jakobsen, Kjetill Sigurd; Jentoft, Sissel (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      Host-intrinsic factors as well as environmental changes are known to be strong evolutionary drivers defining the genetic foundation of immunity. Using a novel set of teleost genomes and a time-calibrated phylogeny, we here ...
    • Successive losses of central immune genes characterize the Gadiformes’ alternate immunity 

      Solbakken, Monica Hongrø; Rise, Matthew L.; Jakobsen, Kjetill Sigurd; Jentoft, Sissel (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2016)
      Great genetic variability among teleost immunomes, with gene losses and expansions of central adaptive and innate components, has been discovered through genome sequencing over the last few years. Here, we demonstrate that ...
