The Zebrafish in Biomedical Research: Biology, Husbandry, Diseases, and Research Applications is a comprehensive work that fulfills a critical need for a thorough compilation of information on this species. The text provide significant updates for working vivarium professionals maintaining zebrafish colonies, veterinarians responsible for their care and well-being, zoologists and ethologists studying the species, and investigators using the species to gain critical insights into human physiology and disease. As the zebrafish has become an important model organism for the study of vertebrate development and disease, organ function, behavior, toxicology, cancer, and drug discovery, this book presents an important resource for future research.
- Presents a complete view of the zebrafish, covering their biology, husbandry, diseases and research applications
- Includes the work of world-renowned editors
- Provides the first authoritative and comprehensive treatment of zebrafish in biomedical research as part of the ACLAM series
