We perform a rapid large scale in situ hybridization screen to characterize genes expressed in a spatially regulated manner during zebrafish embryogenesis. cDNAs collected from ZGC and I.M.A.G.E. libraries are used as templates for the synthesis of digoxygenin labeled antisense RNA probes. These probes are subsequently used to analyze the expression pattern of the corresponding gene at different developmental stages (from gastrula to hatching). These data are deposited in the ZFIN database. This work provides hundreds of specific cell or tissue markers to analyze mutant phenotypes and to help identify candidates for mutant loci or downstream targets of regulatory genes. This project allows the description of zebrafish embryonic development in terms of gene expression and will eventually establish a "molecular anatomy" of the developing embryo.
