Good old Chr. Smith is back in a team with Ben Koop et al. demonstrating a very functional approach to understand smoltification and migration in O. mykiss. They also focus on some immune genes that are over-expressed in residents compared to migrants. This latter approach could be interesting as a follow up for comparing some of Wes’ sockeye populations with very different MHC haplotype profiles!
