Zebrafish is gaining prominence as an important vertebrate model for investigating various human diseases such as neurodegenerative disease, cancer and chronic inflammatory diseases. Zebrafish provides uniques advantages, for example optical clarity of embyos, high fecundity rate, and low cost of maintenance, making it perfect complement to the murine model in biomedical research.

Recent advances, which includes the generation of novel transgenic lines that enable real time imaging of neuronal activities, the use of cancer cell line or tissue xenotransplantation techniques, and the development of efficient knock-out/knock-in technologies, now allow the detailed investigation of human disease in zebrafish.
