  2. Resource Description
    Imaging is an essential part of zebrafish research. The larvae are clear and all organs are visible. The size of a 5-day-old larvae is ideal for microscopy; it is thin enough to focus through a whole larvae, and organs are small enough so an entire organ can be imaged with a confocal microscope and a 20x lens. Zebrafish researchers have created fluorescent lines labeling nearly all organs or specific tissues within organs. Time-lapse analysis is another hallmark of zebrafish research, allowing fish to be followed under a microscope for hours or days so observation of organ development, nerve growth, tissue interaction during tumor formation, or whole animal development in mutants is possible.
