As one of the most important model organisms in biological research, due to its unique advantages, zebrafish have been widely used in developmental biology, genetics, oncology, pharmacology, toxicology, environmental protection, and many other fields since the 1970s making many new important contributions. It may be expected that with the enrichment of research methods and the development of science, zebrafish will play a greater role in biomedicine as an ideal model organism and help us to understand the basic biological and human mechanisms greatly.
