Abstract

During the past 15 years, the zebrafish has become established as a genetic model organism to study vertebrate development. It is particularly well suited for the analysis of the retina, and several genetic screens have yielded a large number of mutants affecting retinal development. Most of these mutants still await thorough analysis and molecular characterization, but work on a handful of genes has already generated interesting results that shed some light on patterning mechanisms employed in the vertebrate retina.
