Zebrafish have entered the arena of vertebrate biology as a mainstream model system, and the use of genetic tools in this tropical fish should enhance our understanding of vertebrate development. The zebrafish system allows genetic experiments that are not possible in other vertebrates, and the mutations isolated thus far attest to its usefulness, complementing knowledge obtained from other model organisms.
