Background Genetic diversity within a species reflects population evolution, ecology, and ability to adapt. Genome-wide population surveys of both natural and introduced populations provide insights into genetic diversity, the evolutionary processes and the genetic basis underlying local adaptation. Grass carp is the most important freshwater foodfish species for food and water weed control. However, there is as yet no overall picture on genetic variations and population structure of this species, which is important for its aquaculture.

La arveja (Pisum sativum L.) es uno de los cultivos domesticados mas antiguos, altamente valorados y ampliamente cultivados en todo el mundo. Sin embargo, en Colombia esta especie carece de estudios geneticos que permitan establecer la variabilidad total. Se estudio la estructura y diversidad genetica en una coleccion de 50 introducciones de arveja arbustiva provenientes del departamento de Narino con 16 marcadores de repeticion de secuencia simple (SSR). El promedio del contenido de informacion...

Abstract The ISGA (International Symposium on Genetics in Aquaculture) is an important conference in the field of aquaculture genetics, which is held every three years. This year, the meeting was hosted by James Cook University, in Cairns. The conference sessions included biotechnology and functional genomics, sex control, genomic prediction, selective breeding and quantitative genetics, industrial use of genetics, genome technology, genetics of diseases and stress, genetics of nutrition, epigen...

Abstract Grass carp is one of the most important cultured fishes all over the world. The genetic diversity of grass carp plays an important role whatever in selective breeding progress or ecological conservation purposes. However, some genetic diversity researches were not accuracy and cannot be compared with each other due to different molecular markers, sample size and detection methods. In this study, we constructed five multiplex PCR assays contained 20 microsatellites with highly polymorphi...

Human-induced biological invasions are common worldwide and often have negative impacts on wildlife and human societies. Several studies have shown evidence for selection on invaders after introduction to the new range. However, selective processes already acting prior to introduction have been largely neglected. Here, we tested whether such early selection acts on known behaviour-related gene variants in the yellow-crowned bishop (Euplectes afer), a pet-traded African songbird. We tested for no...

To characterize the genetic underpinnings of speciation, genome scans can identify genomic regions that differ between divergent populations of wild organisms. In this Review, Wolf and Ellegren describe the methodological details of these approaches and how genomic islands of differentiation should be interpreted cautiously in the search for 'speciation genes'. They also discuss methodological best practice that takes into consideration genomic differentiation occurring through speciation-indepe...

Across western North America, Mimulus guttatus exists as many local populations adapted to site-specific environmental challenges. Gene flow between locally adapted populations will affect genetic diversity both within demes and across the larger metapopulation. Here, we analyse 34 whole-genome sequences from the intensively studied Iron Mountain population (IM) in conjunction with sequences from 22 Mimulus individuals sampled from across western North America. Three striking features of these d...

Genomewide analysis of genetic divergence is critically important in understanding the genetic processes of allopatric speciation. We sequenced RAD tags of 131 Asian seabass individuals of six populations from South-East Asia and Australia/Papua New Guinea. Using 32 433 SNPs, we examined the genetic diversity and patterns of population differentiation across all the populations. We found significant evidence of genetic heterogeneity between South-East Asian and Australian/Papua New Guinean popul...

Different types of food wastes, e.g., meats, bones, cereals, fruits, and vegetables, were collected from hotels in Hong Kong, mixed in different ratio, and processed into feed pellets (food wastes (FWs) A, B, and C) for feeding trials in aquaculture species. Grass carp fed with cereal-dominant feed (FW A) showed the best growth (in terms of specific growth rate, relative weight gain, and protein efficiency ratio), among all food waste feeds. However, the growth rates of food waste groups especia...

Recent studies have revealed repeated patterns of genomic divergence associated with species formation. Such patterns suggest that natural selection tends to target a set of available genes, but is also indicative that closely related taxa share evolutionary constraints that limit genetic variability. Studying patterns of genomic divergence among populations within the same species may shed light on the underlying evolutionary processes. Here, we examine transcriptome-wide divergence and polymor...
