Zebrafish is the simplest model vertebrate amenable to genetics, and genome information and methods of embryo manipulation have been accumulated world?widely. The numbers of the mutant and transgenic zebrafish strains are rapidly increasing, and these strains will play important roles in the basic biology research and as model systems of the human diseases in the future. However, only the researchers, who have established the zebrafish strains, have been distributing the fish at their discretion, and the system to distribute the strains has not been well established in Japan.
Under these circumstances, we establish the system to collect, preserve, and provide zebrafish strains, as part of the National Bio Resource Project that establish the system to provide useful model vertebrates in Japan.
