An underlying principle of developmental biology is that invertebrate species, such as flies or fish, employ essentially the same signaling systems to establish the body plan as vertebrates. While the mouse may be the animal model of choice for studies of vertebrate development, the fact that most of mouse embryonic development occurs in the mother's uterus makes it quite difficult to study. The zebrafish, which produces large numbers of embyros that develop outside the mother's body, has emerged as the preeminent genetic system for developmental analysis.

This volume of Methods in Cell Biology is the 3e, and provides comprehensive compendia of laboratory protocols and reviews covering all the new methods developed since 2004. This new volume on Disease Models and Chemical Screens, covers two rapidly emerging and compelling applications of the zebrafish.
