The zebrafish (Danio rerio) is a valuable and common model for researchers working in the fields of genetics, oncology and developmental sciences. This full-color atlas will aid experimental design and interpretation in these areas by providing a fundamental understanding of zebrafish anatomy. Over 150 photomicrographs are included and can be used for direct comparison with histological slides, allowing quick and accurate identification of the anatomic structures of interest. Hematoxylin and eosin stained longitudinal and transverse sections demonstrate gross anatomic relationships and illustrate the microscopic anatomy of major organs. Unlike much of the current literature, this book is focused exclusively on the zebrafish, eliminating the need for researchers to exclude structures that are only found in other fish.

Review quote

"The text is an excellent reference for researchers as they compare their mutant phenotype of interest to an ideal, impeccably imaged standard."

About Joseph A. Holden

Joseph Holden was a member of the Department of Pathology at the University of Utah School of Medicine. His most recent interests included the development of a zebrafish model for c-kit and malignant melanoma as well as a zebra fish model for BRAF and carcinoma of the thyroid. Lester Layfield is currently Head of Surgical Pathology at the University of Utah. His academic interests include fine-needle aspiration cytopathology as well as molecular diagnostic techniques for diagnosis and prognostication in a variety of malignancies. He is currently involved with developing a zebrafish model for BRAF mutations. Jennifer L. Matthews works at the Zebrafish International Resource Center at the University of Oregon. She has extensive experience working with these animals and is an active member of the zebrafish community.
