His PhD thesis was entitled: Utilization of on-protein nitrogen in common carp nutrition. In 1984 he received his D.Sc. from Agricultural University, Szczecin, Poland, based on his work on “Energetic and biochemical aspects of reproduction strategy in coregonid fish”. The employment and professional history includes postdoctoral fellowship at The University of Ulster, Coleraine, Northern Ireland, UK in 1977-78, Senior Research Associate, National Institute of Agriculture, Laboratory of Fish Nutrition, St. Pee sur Nivelle, France, 1981-1984, visiting professor in Department of Aquaculture, University of Fisheries, Tokyo, Japan in 1984-85, visiting professor in the Institute of Zoology, University of Innsbruck, Innsbruck, Austria, in 1988-89. He joined OSU in the same year. He has authored more than 350 scientific publications. Major publications include 2001 book on “Ascorbic Acid in Aquatic Organisms, CRC Press. Chapters in 2006 Fish Physiology (volume 21) on “Feeding plasticity and nutritional physiology in tropical fishes”, on “Intermediary Metabolism” in the 3rd edition of J. Halver and R. Hardy 2002 classical book of “Fish Nutrition”, and two chapters in 2009 Kunz, Y.R. as editor of “Development of Non-Teleost Fish” on “Early Ontogeny of Semionotiformes and Amiiformes (Neopterygii: Actinopterygii)” and “Early Development of Acipenseriformes (Chondrostei, Actinopterygii)”. He is the member of many aquaculture and fisheries journal Editorial Boards, for example “Aquaculture Research”, “Aquaculture Nutrition”, “Aquatic Living Resources”, currently assistant editor of “Fish Physiology and Biochemistry.” At present he works on several projects related to finfish nutrition, reproduction, embryology, toxicology, genetics both related to aquaculture and fisheries. For example, studies on Lake Erie in collaboration with Aquatic Ecology Laboratory at OSU and Ohio Division of Wildlife (ODNR) involve biochemical aspects (lipids, fatty acids, vitamins) of walleye and yellow perch reproduction and offspring quality. Studies with University of Illinois and State University of New York in Brockport involve lake trout and walleye “early mortality syndrome” associated with thiamine deficiency. Studies with tilapia and other ornamental, tropical fish involve controlled reproduction, yolk utilization, larval rearing and use of biofuel algae in diet formulations. Studies in collaboration with Ohio State Piketon Research Station and Department of Animal Sciences at OSU address replacement of fish meal with plant proteins enriched with amino acids and peptides, their effect on reproduction, genetic selection and offspring quality.

Biography :

Klaus Becker has held the position of Professor and Head of the Aquaculture Systems and Animal Nutrition Department in the Tropics and Subtropics at the University of Hohenheim, Germany, since 1986. He was raised on a diversified livestock and grain farm in Central Germany. Dr. Becker earned his lower and diploma degree in Tropical Agriculture 1969 in Witzenhausen. Subsequently, he immediately joined the German Development Aid Agency and went to Salima/Malawi as a Development Aid Volunteer where he worked in a regional integrated aid project from 1969-1971. He then continued his higher studies in Agricultural Sciences at the University of Göttingen where he obtained a dual diploma degree in animal physiology and animal nutrition in 1974 and his PhD. in 1976. After a 2 year post doctoral appointment, Dr. Becker became a Research Associate in the Department of Performance Physiology. His research efforts during this time were in the area of energy metabolism of carp (Cyprinus carpio L.) From 1983-1984 he was awarded the Max-Planck-Fellowship for studies in the Department of Zoology, Tel Aviv University, Israel. In 1985, Dr. Becker achieved the rank of Full Professor and Head of the Department of Animal Nutrition in the Tropics and Subtropics, University of Hohenheim. He was named Director of the Institute of Animal Production in the Tropics and Subtropics in 1991 and has held this position since. His specific scientific interests were focused on basic and applied fish energetics and nutrition as well as research on the use of low quality forages and by-products feeds for ruminants. After focussing on these majors for many years he and his group turned their attention to secondary plant components in alternative feed and food resources from the tropics and subtropics. His lab group generated a multitude of refereed literature on this topic. In addition he is also conducting research on renewable energy resources in the tropics and subtropics throughout the last 10 years with an emphasis on “Jatropha”. In 2005 he founded the consulting company “JatroSolutions” where he acts as General Manager. Dr. Becker has authored or co-authored over 300 refereed research papers, 11 book chapters and more than 300 abstracts and proceeding papers. To date he has served as mentor for 36 doctoral students and 45 candidates for the Diploma/Masters degree. He is member of several professional societies and editorial boards including the German Society of Nutrition Physiology and the American Society of Animal Science. Dr. Becker has conducted research projects in over 20 developing countries in Africa, Asia, Central America as well as in Europe and supervises senior scientists in advanced laboratory techniques encompassing in vitro and in vivo studies of rumen bacteria as influenced by feed quality and secondary plant compounds.

He was appointed Research Associate in Laboratory of Aquacultural Biology, Graduate School of Agriculture Sciences, Tohoku University, in 1991 and Associate Professor in 2003. In 1998, Ph.D. of Agricultural Science: Functional profiles of hemocytes in the bio-defense process of the Pacific oyster, Crassostrea gigas, Tohoku University, Japan. He carried out research on the host-defense mechanisms and innate immunity processes in physiology of shellfish, especially oysters (Pacific oyster, Kumamoto oyster etc.). His research presented an important role of reactive oxygen intermediates associated with phagocytosis of oyster hemocytes. He and his co-researchers\\ current research interests are: to clarify the function of lysozymes, which are bacteriolytic enzymes and play a major biological role in host defense, as these enzymes can act as antibacterial and immune-modulating agents, in C. gigas. They have been investigating molecular and biochemical characteristics of lysozymes since 2007. We have attempted to clone and identify each lysozyme cDNA; to demonstrate sites of lysozyme gene expression; to produce recombinant lysozymes; to characterize the properties of recombinant lysozymes; to purify each lysozyme molecule; and to determine the tissue distributions of each lysozyme molecule.

Biography :

Dr Sam Martin is a senior lecturer in Fish Physiology within the Institute of Biological and Environmental Sciences (IBES), University of Aberdeen, UK. Sam gained his PhD from Queens University, Belfast, examining and cloning pituitary hormone genes in Atlantic salmon to help understand the control of the parr smolt transformation. He did postdoctoral research in University of Glasgow, National University of Ireland, Galway and University of Aberdeen, before being appointed lecturer in 2007 at Aberdeen. Sam’s research group focuses on gene expression in salmonid fish related to both immune function, protein metabolism and nutritional aspects of fish health. He has developed microarrays to examine global gene expression in salmon and trout and has also used proteomics to examine differential protein expression in both nutritional experiments in trout and salmon. Sam is a member of the Scottish Fish Immunology Research Centre based in IBES which is a world leading fish immunology group. Sam has published over 45 papers in peer reviewed journals and has funds his from EU, BBSRC, NERC and industrial collaborations.
