    At Work: FIS: Pacific bluefin tuna exceptional eyesight revealed by revolutionary DNA study
    Submitted by J.W. Bizzaro; posted on Wednesday, July 24, 2013



    For the first time, a team of Japanese researchers have been able to sequence the complete genome of the Pacific bluefin tuna (Thunnus orientalis) and to identify the genes that are responsible for its remarkable eyesight. This feature has turned this species into an extremely efficient predator in the ocean.
