We describe here simple methods for producing transgenic zebrafish reporter lines using BAC clones. The use of BAC clones facilitates creation of useful transgenics as the large amounts of genomic DNA they contain increase the likelihood that reporter gene expression will be properly regulated. Combined with recent advances in live embryo image analysis, this strategy has the potential to greatly advance the investigation of neural cell behavior during development.
