Overview of Services

The Zebrafish Functional Genomics Core at Penn State College of Medicine was established to provide the Penn State research community with a modern, centralized facility for housing, breeding and performing experiments with zebrafish, one of the fastest growing model systems in biomedical research, as well as the intellectual infrastructure to do that work. The Zebrafish Functional Genomics Core is a newly designed facility housing a state-of-the-art Pentair Aquatic Habitats recirculating aquaria, housed in the Department of Comparative Medicine.  The facility includes twin 16-rack recirculating systems with independent filtration/purification, an isolated quarantine room with three stand-alone housing systems, a sentinel pathogen-monitoring program, a procedure room, and three independently controlled light-tight breeding cabinets.
