Special Issue Information
Aquatic animals, including fishes, crustaceans, shellfishes, etc., have made great contributions to the development of aquaculture industry, and provided premium protein resources for human beings. Biotechnologies have been and will be continuously applied in the breeding of aquatic animals in order to improve the important production traits. This Special Issue focuses on the application of biological technologies in aquaculture organisms to explore the regulatory mechanisms and to improve the productive performances of the related production traits, such as growth, fecundity, disease resistance, etc., as well as the development of new breeding techniques, such as sex manipulation, genome modification, etc., or investigation of the traditional/quantitative/molecular genetics in breeding.
Gene editing and transgene techniques have proven to be a powerful tool for biological characteristics manipulation and genetic modification, as well as the trait-related regulatory genes discovery. Any research on the utilization of gene editing platforms in improving/exploring such aspects are preferred. In addition, a combination of various biotechnologies to elucidate the mechanisms of the important traits-regulation are welcomed.
The advancement of next-generation sequencing combining with the continuous reduction in cost have greatly accelerated its utilization in genetic information elucidation. Research related to genome, transcriptome, epigenome, etc., as well as methodology in relevant areas are appreciated.
