  1. aHaploid genome size and chromosome number (also see http://www.genomesonline.org/ and http://www.genomesize.com/).
  2. bLinkage maps also exist for other fish species without significant genomic resources including several salmonids, the blind cave fish Astyanax mexicanus and the guppy Poecilia reticulata (Danzmann and Gharbi (2001) and references therein; Borowsky and Wilkens, 2002; Khoo et al, 2003; Woram et al, 2004).
  3. cNucleic sequences are generally also accessible using the NCBI blast server (http://www.ncbi.nih.gov/BLAST/).
