Springer Nature eBook
Description / Table of Contents:
This fully updated edition introduces new tools, models, and analytic insights that position the zebrafish even more strongly as an engine of discovery for developmental and disease biology. Beginning with a section exploring detailed methods for use of zebrafish to model a variety of human diseases, the book continues by illuminating the key ongoing role of the fish model in studies of the vertebrate nervous system, tools and approaches using zebrafish to study stem cell and regenerative biology, as well as techniques in genetics and genomics. Written for the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology series, chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step and readily reproducible laboratory protocols, as well as tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls. Authoritative and up-to-date, Zebrafish: Methods and Protocols, Third Edition serves as an invaluable guide to propel advances in developmental biology, disease modeling, and regeneration research using zebrafish and medaka as model systems.
