Summary and Implications

Eighty-six shrimp (eighty Pacific White, six Tiger shrimp) from ten different geographic regions were sequenced with a twofold goal: first, to better understand and document the genetic makeup of the species, and second, to discover genetic differences between shrimp lines that may facilitate the breeding of shrimp with better performance traits
