Genomics In Aquaculture Pdf

By Simon MacKenzie and Sissel Jentoft

Genomics in Aquaculture PDF is a concise, must-have reference that describes current advances within the field of genomics and their applications to aquaculture. Written in an accessible manner for anyone—non-specialists to experts alike—this book provides in-depth coverage of genomics spanning from genome sequencing, to transcriptomics and proteomics. It provides, for ease of learning, examples from key species most relevant to current intensive aquaculture practice.

Its coverage of minority species that have a specific biological interest (e.g., Pleuronectiformes) makes this book useful for countries that are developing such species. It is a robust, practical resource that covers foundational, functional, and applied aspects of genomics in aquaculture, presenting the most current information in a field of research that is rapidly growing.

  • Provides the latest scientific methods and technologies to maximize efficiencies for healthy fish production, with summary tables for quick reference
  • Offers an extended glossary of technical and methodological terms to help readers better understand key biological concepts
  • Describes state-of-the-art technologies, such as transcriptomics and epigenomics, currently under development for future perspective of the field
  • Covers minority species that have a specific biological interest (e.g., Pleuronectiformes), making the book useful to countries developing such species
