Genomics in Aquaculture is a must-have concise reference that describes major issues within the field of genomics and their applications to aquaculture. Genomics research has attained a worldwide impact in aquaculture contributing to sustainability and food security across our continents. Written in an accessible manner for anyone, non-specialists to experts, Genomics in Aquaculture provides in-depth coverage of genomics spanning from genome sequencing to transcriptomics and proteomics. It provides examples from key species most relevant to current intensive aquaculture practice. Its coverage of minority species that have a specific biological interest (i.e., Pleuronectiformes) makes this book useful to countries that are developing such species. It is a robust, practical resource that covers foundational, functional, and applied aspects of genomics in aquaculture and presents the most current information in this rapidly growing field of research.
