Takifugu rubripes (also known as Fugu rubripes or fugu) is a pufferfish that is commonly about 40 cm in length and is found in the Pacific Northwest region of Asia. Pufferfish are generally believed to be the second most poisonous vertebrate in the world; however, not all species are poisonous. Certain internal organs, such as the liver and sometimes the skin, contain tetrodotoxin and are highly toxic to most animals when eaten. Nevertheless, the meat of some species is considered a delicacy in Japan.

Pufferfish are able to move their eyes independently, and many species can change the color or intensity of their patterns in response to environmental changes. The pufferfish's excellent eyesight, combined with a sudden burst of speed, is the first and most important defense against predators. The other defense mechanism is to inflate their stomach with water to appear large and thus scare predators.

The fugu (Fugu rubripes) genome project was initiated in 1989 by Sydney Brenner and colleagues. In 1993, this team showed that the fugu genome is 390 Mb, about one-eighth the size of the human genome, yet it contains a similar repertoire of genes to humans. A draft sequence of the fugu genome was determined using a whole-genome shotgun strategy, and was released by the International Fugu Genome Consortium in 2002. The genome is thought to contain 18,093 protein-coding genes.
