Zebrafish

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

The zebrafish (Danio rerio) is a popular aquatic fish increasingly being used as a model vertebrate in life science research. This organism has a full complement of genetic tools including a polished consensus genome and effective tools for both forward and reverse genetics approaches. From the genetic basis of variation in pigmentation to stem cell biology to behavioral genetics of addiction, the zebrafish is the premier nonmammalian vertebrate model organism.
