Zebrafish: Earning Their Stripes in Developmental Research
This light teal green colored poster depicts the life stages of zebrafish and images of genetically altered adult fish used for specialized research. The background of this poster shows two muted dark green strands of DNA drawn to represent seaweed horizontally centered and covering about 75% of the poster. At the bottom of the poster is a time line from 0 to 5 days then jumping to the 30th day. Above the time line fish eggs are shown on the far left followed by four images of a growing fish and ending with a fully developed fish at 1 month old. Above the time line superimposed on the DNA seaweed are five images of fish that were manipulated to emphasize different aspects of the zebrafish. The top three fish are fully developed but are different colors with characteristic black stripes. Below them is a transparent fish with visible stylized internal organs and the last fish is also transparent with a visible skeleton. The subtitle is, “A Program Sponsored by The NIH Animal Care and Use Committee, 496-5424.” The OACU and the NIH logos are also shown.
