In this paper we evaluate factors which should, in our opinion, be taken into account when genomic studies in aquatic organisms are extended to functions. Our first point is that genome-wide gene duplications characteristic of teleosts have enabled more rapid evolution in fish generally than usually in tetrapods. We further discuss factors that are pertinent when gene ontologies are used in animals with little earlier work combining genomic and functional data. We then review issues relating to… CONTINUE READING
