Zebrafish Core Facility

About ZCF

The Zebrafish Core Facility (ZCF) is established aiming to support research community of the University of Hong Kong. ZCF is a unit under Faculty Core Facility and supported by Faculty Development Fund of Li Ka Shing Faculty of Medicine.

Zebrafish (Danio rerio) is a freshwater species in minnow family under the order Cypriniformes. Native to south Asia, the species is emerging as a vertebrate model organism for studying gene interaction, developmental biology and modeling human diseases. Optically transparent embryos, large brood size and relatively short lifecycle compared to other vertebrate model organisms vastly accelerated biological studies.
