With the rapid development of next-generation sequencing technologies and bioinformatics, over 50 ray-finned fish genomes by far have been sequenced with high quality. The genomic work provides abundant genetic resources for deep understanding of divergence, evolution and adaptation in the fish genomes. They are also instructive for identification of candidate genes for functional verification, molecular breeding, and development of novel marine drugs. As an example of other omics data, the Fish-T1K project generated a big database of fish transcriptomes to integrate with these published fish genomes for potential applications. In this review, we highlight the above-mentioned recent investigations and core topics on the ray-finned fish genome research, with a main goal to obtain a deeper understanding of fish biology for theoretical and practical applications.
