Building upon this foundation, researchers are now emphasizing research on genome function
Examples looking at our understanding of the functional genomes of salmonids, Mediterranean sea bass, Atlantic cod, catfish, shrimp, and molluscs, are included in the book
Functional Genomics in Aquaculture opens with two chapters that provide a useful general introduction to the field of functional genomics
Genome maps of key agricultural species have offered increased understanding of the structure, organization, and evolution of animal genomes
Providing valuable insights and discoveries into the functional genomes of finfish and shellfish species, Functional Genomics in Aquaculture, will be an invaluable resource to researchers and professionals in aquaculture, genetics, and animal science.
Published with the World Aquaculture Society, Functional Genomics in Aquaculture looks at the advances in this field as they directly relate to key traits and species in aquaculture production
The final five chapters focus on a variety of key aquaculture species
The second section of the book focuses on key production traits such as growth, development, reproduction, nutrition, and physiological response to stress and diseases
