Abstract: Genome projects for new fish species are found in a transitional period during which resource development and meaningful com- parative genomics analysis or use of any other comparative approach must be done in parallel. In new species, full sequencing is still prohibitive due to the high cost of vertebrate genome sequencing and the fact that present technology is time consuming. However, in the case of the few model species whose research is pioneering and where huge progress has been made on developmental, physiological, behavioral, and genomic levels, knowledge integration is in a process of rapid change. These reasons may explain why a general strategy to facilitate the choice of tar- get species and the kind of developments needed has not yet been adopted. In such an environment,BRIDGEMAP ,theEuropean gilthead seabream genome project, was com- pleted in December 2005. This was one of the first genome projects for a non-model fish of aquaculture interest.
