Draft sequencing and analysis of the genome of pufferfish Takifugu flavidus.
Bottom Line: The combined length of repetitive sequences was 26.5 Mb, which accounted for 6.87% of the genome, indicating that the compactness of T. flavidus genome was approximative with that of T. rubripes genome.A total of 1,253 non-coding RNA genes and 30,285 protein-encoding genes were assigned to the genome.This draft genome provides a valuable resource for understanding and improving both fundamental and applied research with pufferfish in the future.

Mentions: A total of 51,990 GO annotations were assigned, and 15,813 of all protein-encoding genes were classified into the biological process, molecular function and cellular component categories (Fig. 3). In the level 2 biological process category, cellular process (19.0%), metabolic process (17.2%) and biological regulation (14.0%) accounted for the major portion, whereas the molecular function category and cellular component category were mainly consisted of binding (51.7%) and cell (54.5%), respectively. There were 117 metabolic pathways affiliated by the presumptive protein-encoding genes of T. flavidus in the KEGG database (data not shown).Figure 3.
