Medaka: Biology, Management, and Experimental Protocols, written by experienced researchers and reviewed by international leaders in the medaka field will provide details on how to set up and maintain medaka colonies in animal facilities, how to troubleshoot systems, how to handle the fish when applied to experimental methods, and most importantly it will introduce the researcher to cutting-edge research in basic and applied biology using medaka as a model animal.
The book will include well-written descriptions of experimental methods and protocols designed to educate the reader how to understand and handle medaka effectively. "Medaka: Biology, Management, and Experimental Protocols" will serve as the definitive reference on the species providing essential information on medaka biology, genetics, and genomics, practical guidance to maintenance of fish stocks, and valuable experimental protocols all in a single volume.
This book will be a must have addition to the library of fish researchers and those using medaka as a model organism within their laboratories.
