The starry flounder (Platichthys stellatus), a flatfish cultured at the margins of the North Pacific, displays an obvious female-biased growth advantage, similar to many other fish species. To reveal the molecular mechanism underlying sexual size dimorphism, a comparative transcriptomic analysis of the somatotropic and reproductive axes was conducted. In total, 156, 67, 3434, and 378 differentially expressed genes (DEGs) between female and male samples were obtained in the brain, liver, gonad, and muscle tissues (q < 0. Read More
