Drug screening and pathways’ validation using Zebra fish

drug screenWe are using zebrafish as a model organism to study the effects of various pesticides and drugs on embryogenesis. This study is facilitated by the inherent advantages that zebrafish offers, which include ease of genetic manipulability, availability of a fully sequenced genome, high degree of homology to higher vertebrate systems, and transparent embryos which develop outside the body.
