Aquaculture Virology by Frederick S. B. Kibenge, Marcos Godoy

By Frederick S. B. Kibenge, Marcos Godoy

To this point textbooks on viruses infecting fish, crustaceans and molluscs, the 3 major aquatic animal farmed groups,  were mainly “diseases-centric” and person viral ailments chosen in keeping with “epizoo-centric” techniques with little to no insurance of the fundamental biology of the viruses, not like textbooks on viruses infecting terrestrial – farmed, puppy, and free-range (wild) – animals and people. regardless of enormous advances in animal virology lately coupled with an economically very important worldwide aquaculture undefined, wisdom of viruses of animal aquaculture remains to be sparse and on occasion outmoded even if those viruses are heavily with regards to recognized virus households. The final e-book in fish virology (Fish viruses and fish viral illnesses 1988, Wolf, K.) was once released within the Nineteen Eighties. loads of paintings has been performed on fish viruses and lots of new aquatic animal viruses remain came upon. Aquaculture Virology presents the present nation of data of aquatic animal viruses in the present virus category and taxonomic context thereby permitting the reader to attract at the rules of common virology. This publication is a scientific and concise source invaluable to a person concerned with or trying to circulate into aquaculture and fisheries. scientific veterinarians, aquaculture affliction practitioners, biologists, farmers, and all these in undefined, executive or academia who're drawn to aquatic animal virology will locate this publication tremendous useful.

  • Provides particular finished info on animal viruses for aquaculture and fisheries
  • Presents top of the range illustrations of viral constitution, diagrams of viral sickness strategies, gross pathology and histopathology lesions, and precis tables to help in understanding
  • Describes aquatic animal viruses of the 3 significant aquatic animals, fish, crustaceans, and molluscs, in the present virus class and taxonomic context thereby permitting the reader to attract at the rules of normal virology

Since the hepatopancreas is a digestive organ of shrimp, and bacteriophage phi29 DNA polymerase (rolling circle amplification) was used in the preparation of DNA for metagenomic sequencing (which preferentially amplifies small circular ssDNA templates (Kim and Bae, 2011)), it could not be discounted that ShrimpCDV represents an ingested environmental contaminant resilient to degradation by the shrimp digestive system.
