Zebrafish Laboratory

CCMB houses a state of the art zebra fish facility that allows transgenic and genetic analysis of this important vertebrate model system. The facility is equipped with large-scale breeding and standalone system for maintenance of different lines. A sophisticated micromanipulation system, high-end microscope/imaging setup and computer-aided tracking system, permits developmental, cell biological and behavioral studies. The facility also offers training, and along with basic research, supports medium-scale testing for the biological activities of potential drug molecules and other bioactive agents.
