Genetic Screens to Enhance Zebrafish Research

National Institute of Child Health and Human Development/NIH/DHHS
Summary: 

The sponsor invites applications designed to exploit the power of the zebrafish as a vertebrate model for biomedical and behavioral research. Applications proposing to develop new genetic screens of high priority to the zebrafish community that will advance the detection and characterization of genes, pathways, and phenotypes of interest in development and aging, organ formation, neural processes, behavior, sensory processes, physiological processes, and disease processes are welcome. In addition, applications for pilot projects seeking to adapt existing phenotypic screening to support high-throughput characterization of mutants generated by large-scale mutagenesis projects are encouraged.
