The complete set of predicted protein-coding genes from Yellowtail
Yellowtail (Seriola quinqueradiata) is the most produced and economically important aquaculture fish species in Japan. The well-annotated yellowtail genome provides a powerful tool for deeper understanding of their biology and will enhance physiological studies for optimization of their breeding technologies. In addition, a comprehensive annotation of overall protein-coding genes for the yellowtail genome identify the important genes and pathways involved in the regulation of economically important traits. In this study, by taking advantage of the genome of haploid fish larvae for de novo assembly of whole-genome sequences, we built a high-quality draft genome of yellowtail with annotation of the protein-coding genes. The draft genome sequence of S. quinqueradiata was submitted to DDBJ under accession no. BEWX01000001 to BEWX01001394 (1394 entries). The complete set of predicted protein-coding genes can be freely downloaded from this site.
