High throughput screening in zebrafish behavioral research

Posted on 03 November 2011

Zebrafish are increasingly swimming into the view of large-scale drug screening projects. Behavioral screens can be used as a first-line detection tool for new drug effects, and their popularity continues to grow. Translating results to what we might see in humans requires an appropriate (vertebrate) model suited for large-scale studies. This is a tall order, but [...] Continue Reading
