Genome-based biotechnologies in aquaculture
FAO study summarizes developments in the field of genome-based biotechnologies as applied to aquaculture.
Genome technologies have been developed to study genome structure, organization, expression and function, and select and modify genomes of interest to increase benefits to humans. Of these genome technologies, DNA marker technologies have been intensely used to map the genome to understand genome structure and organization.
Microsatellite markers and SNP markers are currently the most important. Various genome-mapping technologies, both physical and genetic, have also been developed. Genetic mapping is based on recombination during meiosis, while physical mapping is based on fingerprints of DNA segments.
