Genomics is a rapidly growing scientific field with applications ranging from improved disease resistance to increased rate of growth. Aquaculture Genome Technologies comprehensively covers the field of genomics and its applications to the aquaculture industry. This volume looks to bridge the gap between a basic understanding of genomic technology to its practical use in the aquaculture industry.Aquaculture Genome Technologies provides the reader with a tour through the aquaculture genomics process. The book opens with a discussion of concepts and principles and moves from there to a detailed discussion of genome mapping and analysis of genome expression. The final two sections look forward…
