Whole genome sequencing (WGS) using next generation sequencing technologies paves the way to sequence the mitochondrial genomes with greater ease and lesser time. Here, we used the WGS data of Clarias batrachus, generated from Roche 454 and Ion Torrent sequencing platforms, to assemble the complete mitogenome using both de novo and reference based(More)
Genes coding for type-I interferon (I-IFN) has been cloned from Labeo rohita, a commercially important and widely cultured fish in India and South East Asia. In the present study, full-length gene of I-IFN was amplified and sequenced. The sequence analysis revealed that I-IFN consists of 1,786 bp genomic sequence with four introns and five exons and an ORF(More)
Expressed sequence tags (EST) provide a valuable and cost effective source of developing simple sequence repeat (SSR) markers. In the present study, genic microsatellite markers were developed for Macrobrachium rosenbergii through mining of EST databases. Twenty-three polymorphic EST-SSR loci were found with number of alleles ranging from 3 to 10, observed(More)
Complete nucleotide sequence of mitochondrial genome (mitogenome) of the Catla catla (Ostariophysi: Cypriniformes: Cyprinidae) was determined in the present study. Its length is 16,594 bp and contains 13 protein coding genes, 22 transfer RNAs, two ribosomal RNAs and one non-coding control region. Most of the genes were encoded on the H-strand, while the ND6(More)
This paper introduces an unequal probability sampling without replacement scheme with inclusion probability proportional to size. This new scheme possesses some desirable properties with regard to π i and π ij , and provides a non-negative variance estimator of the Horvitz and Thompson esti-mator, when the values of the auxiliary variable fulfill some(More)
Determination of genealogical relationship between broodstock and progeny is important to estimate selection response in aquaculture breeding programs. Currently, the application of microsatellite markers for parentage determination is gaining popularity in aquaculture. In the present study, 17 simple sequence repeat markers were evaluated for parentage(More)
