Zebrafish are simple, rapidly-developing animals that are amenable to detailed developmental and genetic analyses. Despite their relatively simple morphology, they share many developmental features with other vertebrates. By combining developmental studies in zebrafish with those in other animals, we will begin to understand the complex events that occur as an embryo develops from a one-celled zygote to a complex, multicellular organism.
