NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Patterns in the Pacific bluefin tuna genome suggest the fish may owe some of its predatory prowess to adaptations involving visual pigment genes.

As they reported in the early, online version of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Japanese researchers used a combination of next-generation sequencing platforms to sequence and assemble a draft diploid genome for the Pacific bluefin tuna, Thunnus orientalis.
