Consideration of the genetics of breeding programs and how these can be applied to improving desirable traits for aquaculture, such as growth rate, feeding efficiency, disease resistance and market acceptability. Consideration of the techniques available for genetic manipulation in aquaculture breeding programs. Major topics include genetic selection, hybridisation, effective breeding numbers, sex reversal and chromosomal manipulation. This subject shares lectures, tutorials and practical classes with AQ3004.
|Students must have a good understanding of GENETICS and EVOLUTION which includes knowledge of DNA structure, microevolutionary processes, genetics of populations and genes and heredity. It would be advantageous for students to have a basic understanding of AQUACULTURE which includes knowledge of aquatic organism physiology and an overview of aquaculture. (BS5470 or BC5101 or BS2470 or BC3101 or BC2023) and (AQ5006 or AQ2001) or equivalent industry experience.|
