Temperature & C. elegans Part Two: How does Temperature affect development?

Summary: We recently published a piece on the importance of temperature in C.elegans which got the whole InVivio Biosystems team thinking about C. elegans’ development, and how it can best be compared. As a result, we thought it would be fun to take pictures of C. elegans in the three most commonly used temperatures to …

Review of Zebrafish Models to Boost Research in Rare Genetic Diseases

Summary A recent publication by Crouzier et al. emphasized the utility of zebrafish as a model for investigating rare diseases — enabling better understanding of their underlying mechanisms, and the development of therapeutics to treat these diseases. In this article we will discuss Crouzier et al.’s publication, and InVivo Biosystems’ ongoing work to help identify …

Lost and Found: Zebrafish as a Drug Discovery Tool

Summary Zebrafish models largely began as a way to research developmental biology, however, their potential to be a preclinical model of human disease quickly became apparent. While the pharmaceutical industry initially invested in zebrafish models, they have yet to widely adopt it – it’s time for that to change.  George Stresinger began using zebrafish as …
