Some aquatic animals serve as models for studying human development, behavior, and disease. With short reproductive cycles and transparent eggs that are easily observed as they develop, Zebrafish are useful for research. Other aquatic models include marine slugs, squid, and octopi.
ORIP's aquatic models program funds development and maintenance of critical genetic stocks, biological materials, and online information for researchers.
