Using zebrafish as a model in biomedicine and study of human diseases – 2nd Edition


The course will provide basic knowledge on the use of the zebrafish as a biological model, with main emphasis on its use for the study of human diseases and in research in biology and biomedical sciences. An introduction to genetic manipulation and production of transgenic lines and “knock-out” will be provided. It is intended to provide the students with skills for using the zebrafish in genetic manipulation techniques, use of transgenic and mutants and studies using microinjection and tissue regeneration.
