Production of clones of homozygous diploid zebra fish (Brachydanio rerio)

Abstract

Homozygous diploid zebra fish have been produced on a large scale by the application of simple physical treatments. Clones of homozygous fish have been produced from individual homozygotes. These clones and associated genetic methods mil facilitate genetic analyses of this vertebrate.
