Functional genomics studies require the availability of genome resources. In the last decade, huge sets of genome resources have been developed from aquaculture species. In this chapter, we provide a brief summary of what is available with various aquaculture species. Our guiding principle, however, is to provide some basic information such that any reader can follow up to find the required information rather than to provide a complete list of resources for all species. In this chapter, we provide an overview of existing genome resources for functional genomics research including DNA markers, expressed sequence tags (ESTs), microarrays, next-generation sequence read archive (SRA) databases, single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) genotyping platforms, databases for aquaculture genome projects, and whole genome sequence assemblies.
