Welcome to JoVE Science Education, the revolutionary video database dedicated to teaching laboratory fundamentals through simple, easy to understand video demonstrations.
This fourth installment of JoVE’s Science Education series features three vertebrate species commonly used in life sciences research: M. musculus (laboratory mouse), G. g. domesticus (chick), and D. rerio (zebrafish). In addition to discussing the current and historical significance of these organisms, the collection includes methodology relating to how they are maintained in the laboratory and reviews important concepts relating to their development.
