The Zebrafish Facility


The University's zebrafish facility was established in 2006 and is currently the largest in Norway. It is run by both the Department of Molecular Biology (MBI) and the Department of Biology (BIO).


The facility provides zebrafish and some technical support for researchers and students using zebrafish as a model in a variety of fields.
