Monitoring Devices Protect Multi-Million Dollar Research Projects
Since the 1960s, scientists have been using the zebrafish (Danio rerio) as a model organism for studying human genetics and disease. While mice and rats have been common choices for research in the past, the zebrafish offers certain advantages over mammals when modeling human diseases. Zebrafish are transparent in the larval stages, allowing scientists to observe processes like tumor metastasis and blood development in bone marrow transplants. They can also produce hundreds of offspring per week and many thousands over their lifetimes.
