In recent years the area of genomics has grown rapidly with great progress having been made in structural genomics of model species. Recently, genome-sequencing efforts have been made beyond model species and reached into the field of aquaculture-related genomes. As the field expands a book is needed to bridge the gap between basic genomic technology and how to systematically apply this information to aquaculture genomes.
Aquaculture Genome Technologies will fill just this gap. Edited by an international leader in aquaculture genome research with contributions from leaders in the field, this book will provide a tour through the aquaculture genomics process providing basic principles and detailed methodologies as to how to use genome technologies to study the genomes of aquaculture species. Aquaculture Genome Technologies is a must-have reference for anyone interested in aquaculture genomes. Edited By: ZhanJiang (John) Liu Hardcover, 551 pages 2007
