Molecular techniques are now essential for discovering new functional genes for the improvement of cultured marine organisms. Such techniques can be used to obtain expressed sequence tags (EST) and, through the use of microarrays, the entire transcriptome. For example, microarrays can be used to reveal biomarkers of health conditions, nutrient changes and immune response in fish and shellfish. EST-based microarray chips were constructed for cultured fish and shellfish species including Japanese… CONTINUE READING
