Named for its stripy appearance, the zebrafish (Danio rerio) is an important model for scientists studying fundamental biology in vertebrates, which is all animals with a backbone. Zebrafish are relatively small and available cheaply compared to other fishes, making them useful animals to study in the laboratory. 84% of human genes associated with diseases are found in zebrafish, meaning that studying zebrafish may provide important insights into disease biology and potentially inform future therapies. They have, like Arabidopsis, also been flown into space!

Pink coloured mug featuring an illustration of Danio rerio and some facts about it.
