Zebrafish Core Center

FINZ is the Institute of Genetic Medicine Center for Functional INvestigation in Zebrafish

"FINZ center construction was funded by a generous gift from Joel J. and Lillian Cohen"

FINZ is your entry point for all things zebrafish. Whether you want to rapidly determine the function of a candidate gene identified in the human population or other systems or assay the regulatory potential of selected sequences – we are here to help.


FINZ is located in the Edward D. Miller Research Building (452) on the East Baltimore Campus. Services: We provide specialized services that include, microinjection of zebrafish embryos, establishment of transgenic lines, morpholino-based gene knockdown strategies, whole mount in situ hybridizations, and in vitro fertilization. Other services comprise adult fish and embryo sales, and transgenic line screenings. Training courses are also available at times to be advertised during the year.
