Constructing a Zebrafish Atlas
Using transgenic fish which express fluorescence in different tissues we are constructing a physiological atlas of embryonic zebrafish. The first atlas was static and contained 5 tissues of 3 days old embryos. We are currently working on building a dynamic atlas in 3D to follow co-development of tissues and organs. Tissue development in transgenic zebrafish is imaged by time-lapse microscopy. The created movies of different tissues are combined using image analysis to build the 3D+time atlas.
