Zebrafish (Danio rerio) is a small (4-5 cm in length) tropical fresh-water fish native to rivers of northern India, northern Pakistan, Nepal, and Bhutan in South Asia. This species has several advantages as a tool in research, including a short generation time, production of large clutches of eggs, external fertilization, and rapid embryogenesis, More...
