Fishing for genes

How cells form organs

Zebrafish are famous fish. Not only because of their fancy stripes, but also because of their embryos. They develop outside the uterus and are transparent, which makes it possible for the Stefan Schulte-Merker Group at the Hubrecht Institute to investigate which genes are important for the construction and formation of organs.
