Model Organisms: Zebra Fish

Produced by the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute, in this activity students have to use their observational skills to identify and record the difference (phenotypic change) between two images, one wild type zebra fish and one mutant zebra fish.

To aid in their diagnosis of the phenotypic change, a glossary is provided to give hints and clues as well as definitions for specific scientific terms.

Some images depict whole embryos or adult fish whilst others focus in on specific tissues or body parts such as muscle.
