The Japanese pufferfish (genus Fugu), which possesses a highly compact genome, is becoming a popular model among those interested in sequencing and mapping the genomes of higher vertebrates. Although genomic libraries have been derived and used to study the molecular biology of Fugu, biological material derived from the living organism is difficult to obtain for laboratories distant from the Asian Pacific. We have established cell cultures from two Fugu species: kusafugu, Fugu niphobles, and… CONTINUE READING
