The International Zebrafish Protein Trap Consortium welcomes you to our database. We currently have teams in the United States, Germany, India, Canada, and Singapore implementing gene-break transposons to create expression-tagged, revertible mutations in zebrafish genes. We provide database services on zfishbook for GBT mutagenesis projects in zebrafish regardless of scale to promote shared use of these valuable resources.
We are using gene-breaking transposons to create dominantly labeled mutants in zebrafish (Sivasubbu et al., Mech Dev 2006, Petzold et al., PNAS 2009 and Clark et al, Nature Methods - May 8, 2011). We currently have 750 active or cryopreserved lines from a total of 1100 initially identified lines.
zfishbook is a real-time database with full and unrestricted access to all information. Registration allows you to save your favorite lines for easy access, request lines from the Mayo Clinic catalog, contribute to line annotation with appropriate credit, and puts you on an optional mailing list for future zfishbook newletters and updates. We welcome participation from any and all of our peer zebrafish colleagues. Therefore please consider registering to help annotate your favorite tissues and expression domains.
All lines on zfishbook are immediately available from the source lab with eventual distribution through ZIRC following synchronization. To request a line, please click on the “request this line” link on the GBT line’s summary page. This link can be found within the summary box for each line.
