Atlas of Zebrafish Development by Robert Bryson-Richardson

By Robert Bryson-Richardson

Zebrafish are greatly thought of a great 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 utilized successfully for illness reports. for instance, mutant zebrafish are being applied for checking out medications that would wrestle a variety of human illnesses, from Alzheimer's and melanoma to kidney failure and congenital center illness. For the 1st time, this atlas offers the examine group 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 supply a sequence of sections in a number of planes from each one pattern. The contents are prepared via developmental phases, with over two hundred pictures that comprise annotations describing anatomical buildings correct to improvement. furthermore, chapters function 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 two hundred pictures comprise explanatory notes
  • Each bankruptcy encompasses a concise description of key anatomical positive factors that consider zebrafish development
  • Despite a long time of use as a version process, earlier there hasn't ever been a consultant to zebrafish on the larval stage
  • The book's web site encompasses a database of over 10k sections from varied areas in addition to 3D photos which are interactive
