- Embryos and larvae for RNA in situ hybridization experiments, histological and immunohistochemical analyses, or experiments that require genomic DNA, total RNA or protein.
- Fixed embryos for RNA in situ hybridization, histological or immunohistochemical analyses
- Embryos and larvae derived from transgenic or mutant lines.
- Maintenance of transgenic and mutant lines.
- An introduction to the zebrafish system that includes hands on training with microinjection and molecular analyses.
- Clutch of 100 newly fertilized wild type, mutant or transgenic embryos - $40 for CDB faculty; $60 for non-CDB faculty
- Fixed embryos suitable for RNA in situ hybridization, histological or immunohistochemical analyses (clutch of 50) - $75 for CDB faculty, $100 for non-CDB faculty.
