About this book

Genomics is a rapidly growing scientific field with applications ranging from improved disease resistance to increased rate of growth. Aquaculture Genome Technologies comprehensively covers the field of genomics and its applications to the aquaculture industry. This volume looks to bridge the gap between a basic understanding of genomic technology to its practical use in the aquaculture industry.

A good and comprehensive overview of the principles of genomic tools ... .[It] will be an important reference for quite some time, and I welcome its arrival. (Aquaculture International, August 2008) "Aquaculture Genome Technologies is the quintessential What, When, Why and How-to book for aquatic genome important addition to any science classroom, laboratory or office." (Aquatic Association of Canada Newsletter) "This most impressive text tells very clearly and comprehensively how and why." (Ausmarine)
