Danio rerio commonly known as zebrafish is a tropical fish belonging to the minnow family (Cyprinidae). It is a major model for studying developmental biology; aided by the transparency of the embryo and adult body, researchers can modify the fish's genotype at the egg stage and see resulting changes as little as three days later.

Zebrafish have the ability to regenerate many of their tissues including fins, skin, heart and, in larval stages, brain. Zebrafish have been used to study cancers, including melanoma, leukemia, pancreatic cancer and hepatocellular carcinoma.

The Tubingen strain was used as the the reference strain for the genome sequencing project as it had been used extensively to identify mutations affecting embryogenesis. Sequencing revealed that 71.4% of human genes have at least one zebrafish ortholog. Currently the zebrafish genome is thought to have more than 26,000 protein-coding genes.
