Thummel Lab Fish Facility
The fish facility was constructed by Aquaneering in 2009. The main system includes 10 floor-to-ceiling (7 ft.) racks. We also have one stand-alone system for quarantine purposes. The approximate capacity of is 10,000 adult zebrafish. We maintain 30-35 different wild-type, mutant, and transgenic lines in the facility. There is also an adjacent microscope room with fluorescent and standard stereomicroscopes, a microinjection rig, and an electroporation setup.
