Washington University in St. Louis is home to one of the largest and most modern zebrafish facilities in the world with robotic feeding and cleaning systems. This facility allows for large-scale, collaborative projects that would not be possible for individual investigators, helping scientists understand human development and disease, from birth defects and cancer to muscle and nerve disorders. The facility has almost 7,000 tanks, including a 2,000-tank nursery and is used by more than 20 laboratories. The facility also has extensive capabilities for obtaining, viewing, and manipulating fish embryos.
