Atlas of Zebrafish Development by Robert Bryson-Richardson

By Robert Bryson-Richardson

Zebrafish are largely thought of a very good model system for vertebrate improvement. The embryo is obvious, thereby permitting visualization and use of labelling and transgenic ways. in addition, as a result ease of inducing new mutations in zebrafish and similarity with the human genome, this organism can be utilized successfully for disorder experiences. for instance, mutant zebrafish are being applied for checking out medications that may strive against a number human ailments, from Alzheimer's and melanoma to kidney failure and congenital middle illness. For the 1st time, this atlas offers the examine group with a whole reference for zebrafish anatomy spanning the early embryo all of the technique to adulthood.

The authors hire the means of optical projection tomography (OPT), and supply a chain of sections in a number of planes from every one pattern. The contents are equipped through developmental phases, with over 2 hundred photographs that comprise annotations describing anatomical constructions suitable to improvement. furthermore, chapters characteristic explanatory textual content that highlights significant advancements within the zebrafish in the course of every 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 photos comprise explanatory notes
  • Each bankruptcy encompasses a concise description of key anatomical beneficial properties that consider zebrafish development
  • Despite decades of use as a version method, in the past there hasn't ever been a advisor to zebrafish on the larval stage
  • The book's site incorporates a database of over 10k sections from diverse areas in addition to 3D photos which are interactive
