Transgenic Zebrafish Core Laboratory

The Transgenic Zebrafish Core Laboratory functions to facilitate use of zebrafish as a vertebrate model system for basic and biomedical science and comparative genomics. Services, equipment, and resources are available to investigators associated with Augusta University or the University System of Georgia on a fee-for-service basis.

Located in CA-3045 (Interdisciplinary Research Building), the Zebrafish Core Laboratory is equipped to maintain ~50,000 adult fish (3000 aquaria) in a temperature and light-controlled environment. A dedicated staff ensures continuity of care, breeding, and quality embryo production. Core Laboratory microscopes, imaging equipment, and computers (see Instrumentation) are available for use by all Augusta University research laboratories.
