Zebrafish
Consortium

About the Consortium


The main goal of the Zebrafish Consortium is to promote zebrafish research.

Created in February 2010, the Constorium offers excellent networking opportunities and peer support for active zebrafish laboratories.

DBFC currently includes the following labs (links provided are to their lab websites):
