The importance of a gene’s impact on traits is well appreciated. Gene expression will affect the growth, immunity, reproduction and environmental resistance of some fish, and then affect the economic performance of fish-related business. Studying the connection between gene and character can help elucidate the growth of fishes. Thus far, a collected database containing large yellow croaker (Larimichthys crocea) genes does not exist. The gene having to do with the growth efficiency of fish will have a huge impact on research. For example, the protein encoded by the IFIH1 gene is associated with the function of viral infection in the immune system, which affects the survival rate of large yellow croakers. Thus, we collected data through the published literature and combined them with a biological genetic database related to the large yellow croaker. Based on the data, we can predict new gene–trait associations which have not yet been discovered. This work will contribute to research on the growth of large yellow croakers. View Full-Text
