This is a free, online textbook that "contains 2- and 3-dimensional, anatomical reference slides of zebrafish to support research and education worldwide. Hematoxylin & eosin histological slides, at various points in the lifespan of the zebrafish, have been scanned at 40x resolution and are available through a virtual slide viewer. 3D models of the organs are reconstructed from plastic tissue sections of embryo and larvae. The size of the zebrafish, which allows sections to fall conveniently within the dimensions of the common 1" x 3" glass slide, makes it possible for this anatomical atlas to become as high resolution as for any vertebrate. That resolution, together with the integration of histology and organ anatomy, will create unique opportunities for comparisons with both smaller and... Show More
