The zebrafish issue: 25 years on
Welcome to Development’s 2021 Subject Collection celebrating the 25th anniversary since the publication of the zebrafish issue.
The issue, originally published in 1996, reported the results from two large zebrafish mutant screens in Tübingen and Boston. It remains the journal’s largest issue to this day, with 37 research articles describing over 1500 mutations involved in zebrafish development. These mutants provided a resource that propelled zebrafish as a model for embryogenesis, regeneration and disease research.
To celebrate this milestone, we have collated the original research articles in the zebrafish issue, together with Spotlight articles that give personal perspectives on the impact the issue has had on the field.
We hope that you enjoy this collection and remember that Development continues to welcome your zebrafish development manuscripts.
