"ZF-MODELS - Zebrafish Models for Human Development and Disease" is an Integrated Project funded by the European Commission as part of its Sixth Framework Programme (EC Contract LSHG-CT-2003-503496). The project started on January 1, 2004 and is scheduled to run over a period of five years.
The aim of this project is to exploit the advantages of the zebrafish to produce knowledge, technology and materials in the form of disease models, drug targets and insight into pathways of gene regulation applicable to human development and disease.
The research effort is divided in five workpackages covering:
- Mutagenesis screening
- Analysis of expression patterns
- Expression profiling and proteomics
- Targeted knock-out
