The Takifugu rubripes v.3.0 (Aug. 2002) whole genome shotgun assembly was provided by the US DOE Joint Genome Institute (JGI) as part of the International Fugu Genome Consortium, led by JGI and the Singapore Institute of Molecular and Cell Biology (IMCB).
A genome position can be specified by the accession number of an mRNA or EST, a scaffold range, an Ensembl transcript ID, or keywords from the GenBank description of an mRNA. The following list provides examples of various types of position queries for the Fugu genome. Note that some position queries (e.g. "huntington") may return matches to the mRNA records of other species. In these cases, the mRNAs are mapped to their homologs in Fugu. See the User Guide for more help.

Downloads of the Fugu data and annotations may be obtained from the UCSC FTP site or Downloads page. These data have been freely provided by the JGI for use in the UCSC Genome Browser.
Note: the genus name Fugu was recently changed to Takifugu. GenBank files for this organism are named with the Takifugu genus, but NCBI includes Fugu as a synonym in the database for searches. Both genus names are currently in use.
