Abstract

Molluscs have a global market based on their wide consumption as one of the delicious as well as proteinaceous food. Though scientists have created much superior strain of mussels and oysters through selective breeding, it has to be noted that there are no Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) till now in molluscs due to insufficient genetic information. Only six species of molluscs have been sequenced for their whole genome. Taking all of this into account, this article tries to provide status of genetic exploration in molluscs.
