The Zebrafish in Biomedical Research, Biology, Husbandry, Diseases, and Research Applications


The Zebrafish in Biomedical Research, Biology, Husbandry, Diseases, and Research Applications

The Zebrafish In Biomedical Research, Biology, Husbandry, Diseases, And Research Applications Pdf

By Samuel Cartner, Judith Eisen, Susan Farmer, Karen Guillemin, Michael Kent and George Sanders

The Zebrafish in Biomedical Research, Biology, Husbandry, Diseases, and Research Applications PDF is a comprehensive work that fulfills a critical need for a thorough compilation of information on this species. The text provides significant updates for working vivarium professionals maintaining zebrafish colonies, veterinarians responsible for their care and well-being, zoologists and ethologists studying the species, and investigators using the species to gain critical insights into human physiology and disease. As the zebrafish has become an important model organism for the study of vertebrate development and disease, organ function, behavior, toxicology, cancer, and drug discovery, this book presents an important resource for future research.

  • Presents a complete view of the zebrafish, covering their biology, husbandry, diseases and research applications
  • Includes the work of world-renowned authors
  • Provides the first authoritative and comprehensive treatment of zebrafish in biomedical research as part of the ACLAM series
