Zebrafish, a four centimeter long fish native to Indian rivers, has attracted considerable scientific interest worldwide primarily as a non-mammalian vertebrate model organism. Being a vertebrate, Zebrafish has blood, eye, heart, kidney and other biological processes that share many features of the human system. Because of the optical transparency of the embryos, small size at maturity and ease of culture, Zebrafish has become a popular organism to study embryonic development for biologist worldwide.  Genetic screens in Zebrafish have led to the discovery of large number of mutations that disrupt embryonic development. Many of these mutations serve as models for several human syndromes.  Over the years, studies in zebrafish have enabled discovery of novel genes, pathways and models of human diseases in addition to understanding mechanisms underlying genome evolution. Zebrafish models are also amenable to high-throughput chemical compound screening, thereby enabling discovery of novel drug compounds. 
Institute of Genomics and Integrative Biology (http://igib.res.in), which is a constituent laboratory of the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (http://www.csir.res.in) has completed the whole genome sequencing of a Wildtype Strain of Zebrafish (Danio rerio).
