Molecular and biochemical tricks of the research trade: -omics approaches in finfish aquaculture.

Profitability of fish farming can be undermined by a suite of biological constraints. Effects of these constraints on the biology of the animal, the functioning of a tissue, or the quality of the final filleted product can be detected with very sensitive hi-tech approaches, grouped by the term...

Fingerprints for two grain amaranthus varieties KBGA1 and suvarna using RAPD and legume based SSR markers.

Genotype specific fingerprints were detected in two grain amaranthus varieties KBGA1 and Suvarna using SSR and RAPD markers. In this study 41 Pigeon Pea SSR markers and 6 RAPD markers were used to generate DNA fingerprints for the two varieties of grain amaranthus. Analysis of polymorphic fragments...
