The Zebrafish International Resource Center provides a central repository for wild-type and mutant strains of zebrafish (Danio rerio) and for materials and information about zebrafish research. Materials and zebrafish strains are collected from and distributed to the research community.

Obtain stocks, cDNAs, ESTs or other materials on-line form
Submit stocks using our on-line form
Pathology services on-line form
Husbandry services on-line form

Standards and procedures for maintaining healthy strains of zebrafish are being developed and a manual for prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases affecting zebrafish is being prepared.
