About this book

This book includes up-to-date information on zebrafish physiology and the tools used to study it, not only as a model species for studies of other vertebrates but with application for studies of human disease and aquatic toxicology.

The utility of zebrafish for physiological research is based on several key features including a fully sequenced genome, rapid generation times), their capacity to produce large numbers of externally fertilized eggs, optical transparency of embryos and larvae, and the applicability of reverse and forward genetics to assess gene function.

Gene knockdown in embryos and the production of transgenic strains are now standard techniques being used to assess physiology.
