An evaluation of potential candidate genes involved in salinity tolerance in striped catfish (Pangasianodon hypopthalmus) using an RNA-SEQ approach

Nguyen, Viet Tuan (2015) An evaluation of potential candidate genes involved in salinity tolerance in striped catfish (Pangasianodon hypopthalmus) using an RNA-SEQ approach. Masters by Research thesis, Queensland University of Technology.

Abstract

The project investigated the molecular response of Tra catfish (Pangasianodon hypophthalmus) to elevated salinity conditions. We employed Next generation sequencing platform to evaluate differential gene expression profiles of key genes under two salinity conditions. Results of the current project can form the basis for further studies to confirm the functional roles of specific genes that influence salinity tolerance in the target species and more broadly in other freshwater teleost fishes. Ultimately, the approach can contribute to developing superior culture stocks of the target species.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
