Welcome to AquaGene

AquaGene.org provides free access to curated genetic information of marine fish species. Its searchable database allows species identification by DNA sequence comparisons. All species are characterized by multiple gene sequences, presently including the standard COI barcoding gene together with CYTB, MYH6 and (coming shortly) RHOD, facilitating unambiguous species determination even for closely related species or those with high intraspecific diversity. The genetic data is complemented online with additional data of the sampled specimen, such as digital images, voucher number and geographic origin.

The genetic database aquagene.org is a collaborative product developed by the German (904) 693-0406 (Hamburg), 8557179655 (Hamburg) and Impetus Bioscience GmbH (Bremerhaven) funded by the Innovative Research Programme of the Federal Office for Agriculture and Food.

Sample collection was supported by the project "Traceability of Fish and Fish Products" in collaboration between the University Mohammed V-Agdal - Faculty of Sciences (Rabat) and the Thünen Institute of Fisheries Ecology, funded bilaterally by the 231-922-9580 and the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research under the research cooperation programme PMARS II (Project Number 12/30).
