Zebrafish larvae as a model to decision-making processes – a case study

We make thousands of decisions every day. It has been estimated that we make around 220 decisions each day only related to food (1). Choice is fundamental for our lives, as well as for the behaviour of all the other animals. Making a decision requires to integrate physiological and psychological information to choose a course of action or a belief among several available options.Understanding the mechanisms by which animals integrate information from their senses over space and time to make sensory-motor decisions is at the core of the reviewed article…

Precise spatiotemporal genome editing in Zebrafish using CRISPR/Cas9

Since 1901, Nobel Prizes have been awarded to “those who, during the preceding year, have conferred the greatest benefit to humankind”, in Alfred Nobel’s words1. Last year, Emmanuelle Charpentier and Jennifer Doudna were awarded with this recognized prize in the field of chemistry for their contributions to the genetic engineering tool known as CRISPR/Cas92.CRISPR/Cas9 has been extensively studied and meticulously developed during these last years for efficient and precise genome editing. In this article, we will review the scientific paper: Spatiotemporal Control of CRISPR/Cas9 Function in Cells and Zebrafish using…
