As a facility established in late 2007, functions of the Zebrafish Facility have been phased in as rapidly as possible. The most critical functions were established first — housing and genotyping — with each new area actively being added to the facility's scientific repertoire.

Current facility functions

  • Animal housing and care
  • Embryo production for genetic knockdown, transgenic and chemical genetic testing
  • Strain propagation, including genotype services
  • Genetic strain cryopreservation
  • Training in zebrafish strain propagation and microinjection

Anticipated future facility functions

  • Transgenic animal generation
  • Knockout generation
  • Training in transgenic and knockout animal methods
