Recent progress in genome-based breeding has created various fish strains carrying desirable genetic traits; however, methods for the long-term preservation of their genetic resources have not yet been developed, mainly due to the lack of cryopreservation techniques for fish eggs and embryos. Recently, we established an alternative cryopreservation technique for fish spermatogonia using a slow-freezing method. Furthermore, we developed a transplantation system to produce functional eggs and… CONTINUE READING
