Researchers have unraveled the molecular basis of many human disorders, and a very large part (over 80 percent) of the genes we know to be associated with human disease have homologues in zebrafish. Social behavior, anxiety-like behavior, and learning and memory can easily be studied in zebrafish. In addition, zebrafish are easily genetically manipulated, optogenetically stimulated, and readily absorb compounds from the water they swim in.
All these attributes, alongside the general advantages of using zebrafish in the lab (small size, high reproductive rate, transparent development outside of the mother, etc.) have contributed to the popularity of zebrafish in translational research.
Using zebrafish models, many scientific advances have been made in research on Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, autism spectrum disorder, several heart conditions, anxiety disorders, learning disabilities, addiction, and eating disorders – the list goes on and on.
