Zebrafish, the next-gen lab rat

I heard a very cool talk from a very cool guy today: Nicholas Katsanis, head of the Center for Human Disease Modeling at Duke University. He talked to us about the “morbid pedriatic genome” and how zebrafish can be used to assay gene function in a more physiological manner.

Of course there are many more topics he is working on, so here his webpage, “to check”:
