      Andrews, Adam; Christiansen, Jørgen Schou; Bhat, Shripathi; Lynghammar, Arve; Westgaard, Jon-Ivar; Pampoulie, Christophe; Præbel, Kim (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019)
      As a result of ocean warming, the species composition of the Arctic seas has begun to shift in a boreal direction. one ecosystem prone to fauna shifts is the Northeast Greenland shelf. the dispersal route taken by boreal ...

      The advent of massive parallel sequencing technologies has resulted in an increase of studies based upon complete mitochondrial genome DNA sequences that revisit the taxonomic status within and among species. Spatially ...
    • Investigating Population Genetic Structure in a Highly Mobile Marine Organism: The Minke Whale Balaenoptera acutorostrata acutorostrata in the North East Atlantic 

      Quintela, Maria; Skaug, Hans Julius; Øien, Nils; Haug, Tore; Seliussen, Bjørghild B.; Solvang, Hiroko K.; Pampoulie, Christophe; Kanda, Naohisa; Pastene, Luis A.; Glover, Kevin A. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2014-09-30)
      Inferring the number of genetically distinct populations and their levels of connectivity is of key importance for the sustainable management and conservation of wildlife. This represents an extra challenge in the marine ...

      Cadrin, Steven X.; Bernreuther, Matthias; Daníelsdóttir, Anna Kristín; Hjörleifsson, Einar; Johansen, Torild; Kerr, Lisa; Kristinsson, Kristjan; Mariani, Stefano; Pampoulie, Christophe; Reinert, Jákup; Saborido-Rey, Fran; Sigurdsson, Thorsteinn; Stransky, Christoph (ICES CM documents;2009/H:01, Working paper, 2009)
      Recent genetic research, supported by life history information, indicates that there are three biological stocks of S. mentella in the Irminger Sea and adjacent waters: a ‘Deep Pelagic’ stock (>500m), a ‘Shallow Pelagic’ ...
    • Three chromosomal rearrangements promote genomic divergence between migratory and stationary ecotypes of Atlantic cod 

      Berg, Paul Ragnar; Star, Bastiaan; Pampoulie, Christophe; Sodeland, Marte; Barth, Julia Maria Isis; Knutsen, Halvor; Jakobsen, Kjetill Sigurd; Jentoft, Sissel (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2016-03-17)
      Identification of genome-wide patterns of divergence provides insight on how genomes are influenced by selection and can reveal the potential for local adaptation in spatially structured populations. In Atlantic cod – ...
