A whole-genome duplication in the ray-finned fish lineage has been supported by the analyses of the genome sequence of the Japanese pufferfish, Fugu rubripes. Recently, genome sequence of a second teleost fish, the freshwater pufferfish, Tetraodon nigroviridis, was completed. Comparisons of long-range synteny between the Tetraodon and human genomes provided additional evidence for the whole-genome duplication in the ray-finned fish lineage. In the present study, we conducted phylogenetic… CONTINUE READING
