"This project aims to better convey the numerous possibilities of the zebrafish model for educational and research purposes at our zebrafish facility. Our research group utilizes zebrafish as a model for vertebrate/human conditions and fish diseases. For example, we study the function of vertebrate genes using the cutting-edge CRISPR/Cas gene editing technology and we house transgenic/GMO zebrafish lines with fluorescently tagged cells, enabling us to track the cells in real-time. With this new fluorescence stereo microscope, we are able to evaluate the transgenic/GMO fish for desired characteristics on site, and e.g. demonstrate how to conduct CRISPR/Cas injections in newly fertilized eggs for educational purposes. The microscope will allow us to cost-effectively expand our research.
