Genomics in Aquaculture by Simon A MacKenzie, Sissel Jentoft

By Simon A MacKenzie, Sissel Jentoft

Genomics in Aquaculture is a concise, must-have reference that describes present advances in the box of genomics and their purposes to aquaculture. Written in an available demeanour for anyone―non-specialists to specialists alike―this e-book presents in-depth insurance of genomics spanning from genome sequencing, to transcriptomics and proteomics. It presents, for ease of studying, examples from key species so much correct to present in depth aquaculture perform.

Its assurance of minority species that experience a selected organic curiosity (e.g., Pleuronectiformes) makes this e-book beneficial for international locations which are constructing such species. it's a powerful, useful source that covers foundational, sensible, and utilized features of genomics in aquaculture, proposing the most up-tp-date info in a box of study that's quickly growing.

  • Provides the most recent medical tools and applied sciences to maximise efficiencies for fit fish construction, with precis tables for fast reference
  • Offers a longer word list of technical and methodological phrases to assist readers greater comprehend key organic concepts
  • Describes cutting-edge applied sciences, corresponding to transcriptomics and epigenomics, presently less than improvement for destiny viewpoint of the field
  • Covers minority species that experience a selected organic curiosity (e.g., Pleuronectiformes), making the ebook beneficial to nations constructing such species

2009). These studies provide a detailed account of the adaptive immune responses against pathogens, and assess the status of the immune system in different pathologies. Such approaches have been developed in rainbow trout and zebrafish based on Ig and TCR sequences available in these species. The availability of a full trout genome sequence, and the potential possibility to obtain a detailed annotation of TCR and Ig loci in this species, will provide researchers with a much-empowered system to access the complete diversity of immune repertoires and responses.

30 Genomics in Aquaculture Linking nutrition to metabolism: hormonal and nutrient sensor roles The decrease of feed intake associated with a low level of plasmatic insulin/glucagon ratio (mainly due to the pursuit of glucagon secretion) are often observed in rainbow trout following the intake of new aquafeeds, having potential strong impacts on feed efficiency (Panserat and Medale, 2013). Recent studies about the nutritional regulation of nutrient sensing pathway in hypothalamus (center of the feed intake regulation) and in endocrine pancreas (center of insulin and glucagon secretion linked to the nutritional status) demonstrated the existence of glucose and lipid sensing mechanisms in these tissues (Caruso and Sheridan, 2011).
