The Zebrafish: Disease Models and Chemical Screens, Fourth Edition, the latest volume in theMethods in Cell Biologyseries, looks at methods for analyzing genetics, genomics, and transcriptomics of zebrafish. Chapters cover such topics as gene-trap mutagenesis, genetic screens for mutations, gene editing in zebrafish, homologous gene targeting, genome-wide RNA tomography, developmental epigenetics, and the zebrafish interactome.

  • Covers sections on model systems and functional studies, imaging-based approaches, and emerging studies
  • Includes chapters written by experts in the field
  • Contains cutting-edge material on the topics discussed
