This volume of Methods in Cell Biology, the second of two parts on the subject of zebrafish, provides a comprehensive compendium of laboratory protocols and reviews covering all the new methods developed since 1999.

Key Features

* Details state-of-the art zebrafish protocols, delineating critical steps in the procedures as well as potential pitfalls * Illustrates many techiques in full-color * Summarizes the Zebrafish Genome Project


Developmental biologists, neurobiologists, and cell biologists.
