The rice field eel as a model system for vertebrate sexual development.


Complex developmental mechanisms of vertebrates are unraveled using comparative genomic approaches. Several teleosts, such as zebrafish, medaka and pufferfish, are used as genetic model systems because they are amenable to studies of gene function. The rice field eel, a freshwater fish, is emerging as a specific model system for studies of vertebrate sexual… (More)
