Technical Abstract: The dramatic decline in sequencing costs brought about by a shift in the last 5-10 years to massively parallel sequencing platforms has far-reaching consequences for the study of mucosal health in aquaculture. Transcriptome sequencing and gene expression profiling (RNA-seq) offer a rapid approach to characterizing actors in mucosal tissues and cell types and their changes following disease challenge, environmental perturbation, nutritional change, or a combination thereof. These and other emerging tools and resources for the comprehensive study of mucosal barriers are highlighted in the present chapter.
