High-thoughput biological imaging: new technology developed by Mehmet Fatih Yanik’s research group allows rapid study of living zebrafish larvae used to model human diseases

newsbrief_2010_07_19_yanik_sm

With the aim of enabling rapid, large-scale studies of living organisms, Mehmet Fatih Yanik’s research group in RLE has engineered a new imaging technique that can analyze zebrafish—a tiny fish with transparent embryos, or larvae, whose internal organs can be easily seen as they develop—in seconds. Because they are genetically similar to humans and have complex organs, biologists often use zebrafish as a model for human diseases. <<more>>
