Insulin-like growth factor II (IGF-II) is involved in the regulation of somatic growth and metabolism in many fishes. IGF-II is an important candidate gene for growth traits in fishes and its polymorphisms were associated with the growth traits. The aim of this study is to screen single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) of the largemouth bass (Micropterus(More)
In this study, the complete mitochondrial genome of Macropodus opercularis was sequenced using Illumina-based de novo transcriptome technology and annotated using bioinformatic tools. The circular mitochondrial genome was 16,496bp in length and contained two ribosomal RNAs, 13 protein-coding genes, 22 transfer RNA genes, and the control region. The gene(More)
The vasa (vas)-related gene encodes an RNA helicase protein member of the DEAD-box family and plays key roles in germ-cell formation in higher metazoans. Using degenerate PCR and RACE, we cloned the vasa gene of the rice field eel (Monopterus albus), which is homologous to the Drosophila vasa gene. We named it ma-vas (Monopterus albus vas). Ma-vas encodes a(More)
In this study, we sequenced and assembled the mitochondrial (mt) genome of Osteoglossum ferreirai to re-assess the phylogenetic relationship of the family Osteoglossidae. We determined that the mitogenome of O. ferreirai contains the entire set of 37 mt genes, and the nucleotide composition and gene arrangement were similar to those of other bonytongues.(More)
The Asian arowana (Scleropages formosus), one of the world's most expensive cultivated ornamental fishes, is an endangered species. It represents an ancient lineage of teleosts: the Osteoglossomorpha. Here, we provide a high-quality chromosome-level reference genome of a female golden-variety arowana using a combination of deep shotgun sequencing and(More)
Asian arowana (Scleropages formosus), an ancient teleost belonging to the Order Osteoglossomorpha, has been a valuable ornamental fish with some varieties. However, its biological studies and breeding germplasm have been remarkably limited by the lack of a reference genome. To solve these problems, here we report high-quality genome sequences of three(More)
Understanding determinants of the invasiveness and ecological impacts of alien species is amongst the most sought-after and urgent research questions in ecology. Several studies have shown the value of comparing the functional responses (FRs) of alien and native predators towards native prey, however, the technique is under-explored with herbivorous alien(More)

Flatfishes (Pleuronectiformes) exhibit different types of large-scale gene rearrangements. In the present study, the mitochondrial (mt) genome (18,369bp) of a tonguefish, Cynoglossus trigrammus, was determined using de novo mitochondrion genome sequencing. Compared with other flatfishes, the mt genome of C. trigrammus revealed distinct mitogenome(More)
