Medaka TG935 Cardio GFP RFP

New medaka line introduced in the lab

We just received a new transgenic line from the National BioRessource Project Medaka (NBRP) in Japan. This line has the heart labeled with a red fluorescent protein and blood cells with a green fluorescent protein. Ordered by Dr Ida Beitnes Johansen and Dr Romain Fontaine, this line will help them, in the future, to investigate the development of the cardiac and blood circulating systems in different environmental conditions, with the aim to identify good and bad practices to raise healthy fish, for a sustainable aquaculture.
