Latest Zebrafish Stories
Changes to just three genetic letters among billions led to evolution and development of the mammalian motor sensory network, and laid the groundwork for the defining characteristics of the human brain.
Researchers studying rare genetic disorders have uncovered insights into those diseases in biological structures that regulate chromosomes when cells divide.
What can a fish tell us about human brain development?
Microscopes provide valuable insights in the structure and dynamics of cells, in particular when the latter remain in their natural environment.
Researchers have developed a new technique which allows them to measure brain activity in large populations of nerve cells at the resolution of individual cells.
University of Bristol researchers have created artificial muscles that can be transformed to mimic the camouflaging abilities of squid and zebrafish.
Changing the conditions that zebrafish are kept in could have an impact on their behavior in animal studies and the reliability of results.
Researchers from the University of Bristol have created artificial muscles that can be transformed at the flick of a switch to mimic the remarkable camouflaging abilities of organisms such as squid and zebrafish.
Just a handful of cells in the embryo are all that's needed to form the outer layer of pumping heart muscle in an adult zebrafish.
Understanding the damage that pollution causes to both wildlife and human health is set to become much easier thanks to a new green-glowing zebrafish.
The Giant Danio (Devario aequipinnatus) is a tropical fish belonging to the minnow family (Cyprinidae). Originating in Sri Lanka, Nepal, and the West coast of India, it grows to a maximum length of 6 in (15 cm), making it one of the largest of the Danionins. They are characterized by a blue and yellow torpedo shaped body with gray and clear fins. In the wild, Giant Danios live in clear streams and rivers among hills at elevations up to 1000 ft (300 m) above sea level. Their native...
The Zebrafish (Danio rerio) is a tropical fish belonging to the minnow family (Cyprinidae). It is a popular aquarium fish, where it is frequently sold under the trade name Zebra danio, and is also an important model organism. Characteristics The zebrafish arose in the Ganges region in Eastern India and is also native to Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal and Myanmar. It commonly inhabits streams, canals, ditches, ponds and slow-moving to stagnant water bodies, including rice fields. The...
The Glowlight danio is a small fish with a maximum length of 1.25 in (4 cm). Its coloration is brown, yellow, green and red. The Glowlight can live in waters that are (20-25 degrees Celsius), 6 to 7 pH, with a soft to medium hardness and a low to medium salinity. These fish are compatible with other danios and typically live from 1 to 3 years. They are moderately difficult fish to keep, and breeding can be even harder. Danio choprai or the Glowlight danio is a small, schooling fish...
