Atlas of Zebrafish Development by Robert Bryson-Richardson,Silke Berger,Peter Currie

By Robert Bryson-Richardson,Silke Berger,Peter Currie

Zebrafish are commonly thought of a superb model system for vertebrate improvement. The embryo is obvious, thereby permitting visualization and use of labelling and transgenic techniques. furthermore, as a result of the ease of inducing new mutations in zebrafish and similarity with the human genome, this organism can be used successfully for disorder reviews. for instance, mutant zebrafish are being applied for trying out medicinal drugs that may wrestle various human ailments, from Alzheimer's and melanoma to kidney failure and congenital middle disorder. For the 1st time, this atlas offers the examine neighborhood with a whole reference for zebrafish anatomy spanning the early embryo the entire strategy to adulthood.

The authors hire the means of optical projection tomography (OPT), and provide a sequence of sections in a number of planes from each one pattern. The contents are equipped via developmental levels, with over two hundred pictures that comprise annotations describing anatomical constructions proper to improvement. furthermore, chapters function explanatory textual content that highlights significant advancements within the zebrafish in the course of each one stage.

  • Provides the 1st complete anatomical source that covers all areas of zebrafish anatomy from the larval interval to adulthood
  • The over 2 hundred photographs contain explanatory notes
  • Each bankruptcy encompasses a concise description of key anatomical gains that think about zebrafish development
  • Despite decades of use as a version process, before there hasn't ever been a advisor to zebrafish on the larval stage
  • The book's site features a database of over 10k sections from various areas in addition to 3D photographs which are interactive
