    A team of Japanese researchers has used a new Pacific bluefin tuna reference genome to identify male-specific DNA markers in the fish
    The cultivation and conservation of one of the most important commercial fishes in the world may come down to sex determination - how can you successfully breed a species without knowing the sex of your stock?
    A Japanese research team has come up with a solution, thanks to a new Pacific bluefin tuna reference genome and the male-specific DNA markers they were able to identify as a result.
    In a study published recently in the Nature journal Scientific Reports...
