Abstract: The local rainbow trout selection strain BORN has been shown to be less susceptible towards different stressors than imported breeding-lines commercially used in aquaculture farms. The aim of this thesis was to identify and characterize candidate genes that are, additionally to already known genes responding to stress, involved in the different stress response of BORN trout. The candidate genes were molecularly characterized; comparative expression analyses in healthy trout as well as after stress caused by infection and challenging temperatures reflect strain specific expression profiles.
