Please provide names for each allele and/or transgenic insertion carried by your line. In addition to the genetic
locus or construct name, a unique lab allele/line designation must be provided for each. Please also provide a
description of the protocol used to generate each mutation or transgenic insertion, as well as the mutation type if
known. For example use "ENU treated adult males" and "point", or "embryos treated with DNA" and "transgenic
insertion". For help with naming conventions, contact the
ZFIN Nomenclature Coordinator. If you need
a laboratory prefix set up for you, please contact us at email@example.com.
