In recent years we have witnessed an explosion in our understanding of how genes regulate developmental and physiological processes, largely based on work from a few model genetic organisms. The zebrafish is the newest of these model organisms. Powerful techniques allow efficient generation and recovery of zebrafish mutations affecting genes that regulate developmental patterning, organogenesis, physiology and behavior, and the transparency of zebrafish embryos aids cellular analysis of gene function.
