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 toward sequencing of entire genomes of aquaculture species. Aquaculture Genome Technologies is edited by an international leader in the field of aquaculture genome research, with contributions from an international team of leading researchers.
Aquaculture Genome Technologies is an essential reference for anyone with an interest in aquaculture genetics.
