Genetic improvement of aquaculture species through breeding and molecular approaches. Currently my research is focussed on genetic analysis on Malaysian golden arowana (Scleropages formosus) and tiger grouper (Epinephelus fuscoguttatus) broodstock population for broodstock management. Apart from that, my research also focus on isolation and molecular characterization of important genes for aquaculture such as growth hormone genes.
