What Is Oyster Aquaculture?

Amazing Essays
ntroduction The development of the oyster aquaculture become limited as there is a presence of the pathogenic associated microbe that can cause disease which lead to physiological and imbalance in that oyster. There is a few reports that describe the bacterial diversity which is poorly know and required to be further study.(Hernández and Olmos,2006). So, it is important to analyze the bacteria of oyster. This study is carry out to analyze the gram positive bacteria diversity present oyster, Crassostrea iredalei by applying molecular technique like DNA extraction and using of polymerase chain reaction (PCR). This study permit us to identify what and how bacteria that become pathogenic to oyster. The starting point in identification of microorganism …show more content…
Thus, this bacteria can be stored for a months. The DNA isolate is important in study the genetic cause of disease and for the development of diagnostic and drugs. It is also essential in forensic science, sequencing genomes,determine paternity and detecting of microbe in the environment.DNA from the isolate bacteria is used in PCR. PCR is a powerful amplification technique that generate many an ample supply of a specific segment at DNA or designed to amplify the 16S RNA gene. There is two specific PCR primer were designed to amplify gene in expected size of 1500bp of a consensus 16S rRNA: forward primer, 8f and reverse primer,U1492R. The process of PCR is done by the program of thermal cycle and repeat. Each DNA used in PCR is serve as a template. The PCR product then is analyzed by agarose gel electrophoresis. Agarose gel electrophoresis is the common and easy way to analyze DNA where that DNA is visualized in the gel. There is a problem may be occur during PCR reaction and electrophoresis such as DNA product appear variable in non-specific on agarose gels. Sometimes no product form at all. (Lorenz,2012). Other is mutation occur during amplication that result in a heteregoneous population of PCR products. (Lorenz,2012). Double check PCR concentration by using analytical agarose gel.

(Tan et.al, 2014). That high production of the oyster and oyster culturist is actually based on pearl oyster compared to edible oyster in Peninsular Malaysia.(Tan et.al,2014). But it is observed that main oyster culture in Marudu, Sabah is Crassostrea iredalei (Department of Fisheries Malaysia,2012). Crassostrea iredalei known well because of it sweet flavor and white coloured flesh. Crassostrea iredalei or also known as slipper oyster and black scar oyster. It is called black scar oyster because it has a distinct black adductor muscle scar. Then, in Philippines it is known as Philippine cupped oyster due to it abundance in that country. In addition, there are three genera of oyster found in Malaysia which is Crassostrea, Saccostrea and Ostrea. Then, Crassostrea iredalei is the species in genus Crassostrea and most valued for culture. Besides that, Sabah also contribute the production of mussel, including Pena Virdis.(Department of Fisheries of Malaysia,2012). But the main mussel seed is at Melaka.(Kechik I. A. ,1995). Green mussels grow faster than oysters and compete with them for space, food and oxygen. Every oyster is considered as sentinel on an aquatic ecosystem because it is a filter feeder. Therefore, oyster can harbor many bacteria and viruses that harm itself also consumer. It is state that microbiota found by previous study

    PCR (Polymerase chain reaction) Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) is a laboratory method that is used to form number of copies of a specific region of DNA interested in. The principle of the polymerase chain reaction is based on the natural replication process of DNA and complementary nucleic acid hybridization. The goal of the PCR is to produce required amount of the target DNA region that is be analyzed. PCR amplified DNA is sent for sequencing and visualized by gel electrophoresis. It also can be cloned into plasmids.…

    Genetic mutations are the source of numerous hereditary diseases. This has been discovered by the comparison of two DNA sequences with bioformatic software. Two sequences are aligned and compared in order to locate mutations in the DNA (Module 4 Protocol,1). Escherichia coli aka E. coli was used as the test subject in this lab because it employs lac operons while transcribing mRNA. An operon is a unit of linked genes that regulates genes in charge of protein synthesis.…

    The16S rRNA primers used in this PCR, are complimentary to sequences conserved in all bacteria and will target sites of variation. These sites of variation were the regions of the DNA amplified by PCR. The products of PCR cannot be sequenced correctly without purification. Purification removes left over reactants and enzymes. A spin column-collection tube complex is used to collect the DNA during a series of centrifugation techniques with different buffers.…

    The joint Genome institute states that Daphnia typically feeds on Algae and Bacteria, they are also an indicator species to environmental change. They occupy a crucial position in food webs. Daphnia also live in both deep lakes and shallow ponds. In the scientific journal Ecology, Etymology and evolution and parasitism in Daphnia by Dieter Ebert 2005 it is stated that Daphnia are asexual. Planktivorous fish feed on Daphnia also Glassworms are known to feed on Daphnia.…

    Thanks to biology, scientists now are able to answers these questions. It is all in the genes or more accurately the deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA). DNA is long chains of nucleotides that carries genetic information that is very crucial in human development. Based on the molecular structure of DNA, it is made of two nucleotide strands and arranged in such manner in which they coil…

    Imhoff cones are mainly used to evaluate the bioflocs. This measures the concentration of the biofloc and the desirable range of biofloc concentration in shrimp pond and fish pond is different. In shrimp pond, the desirable range of biofloc concentration is between 1 and 40 ml/litre while a range of 2 to 100 ml/litre is found to be the ideal range in fish pond. Use of biofloc as a feed for aquaculture species Biofloc in finfish culture systems Biofloc technology can be applied in culturing various species of finfishes. The application of biofloc technology in red tilapia culture enhances the water quality and resistance to fish diseases (Widanarni et al., 2012).…

    The thermocycler is where PCR will occur. It consists of several cycles, about 35 cycles that amplify a single DNA sequence to over 2¬¬¬35 copies. Once the DNA is amplified, it can be analyzed on a gel. My products in the +RT tube were analyzed; as expected I found a bright band around the 1100 bp, indicating that my amplified sequence is as expected. However, in the –RT, a dim band was found around the 1300 bp, indicating a possible genomic DNA contamination.…

    Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) methods are often used for amplification of specific DNA sequences prior to molecular cloning. In DNA cloning the DNA to be cloned is obtained from an organism of interest, then treated with enzymes in the test tube to generate smaller DNA fragments. Subsequently, these fragments are then combined with vector DNA to generate recombinant DNA molecules. The recombinant DNA is then introduced into a host organism (typically an easy-to-grow, benign, laboratory strain of E. coli bacteria). This will generate a population of organisms in which recombinant DNA molecules are replicated along with the host DNA.…

    A. Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) Principle It includes the primer mediated enzymatic amplification of DNA. It uses the ability of DNA polymerase to manufacture new strand of DNA complementary to the offered template strand. DNA polymerase can add a nucleotide only onto a preexisting 3′-OH group to add the first nucleotide that is way Primer is required. Then DNA polymerase elongates its three ends by adding more nucleotides to generate an extended region of double-stranded DNA. Procedure All the PCR components are mixed and are taken through series of 3 important cyclic reactions held in an automated, self-contained thermocycler machine.…
