Zebrafish Lab Facility

The zebrafish lab facility in Daulat Ram College was set up in October 2015, jointly by Biochemistry and Zoology Departments in collaboration with CSIR-IGIB, Mathura Road, Delhi, and Sanskriti Foundation Delhi. The facility has been funded by the Star Innovation projects DU, Star College project DBT, Govt. of India, and Innovation projects DU. It was developed with the aim of providing an alternative in vivo non –invasive model systemfor science education, teaching and research. Zebrafish lab facility is a state of the art temperature and photo-period controlled facility, houses automated re-circulatory fish habitat system, RO water plant, stereo-microscopes, inverted microscope with digital display screen (Evos) and fluorescent microscope (Nikon). The facility provides training in zebrafish model system to faculty and students. Till date, around 65 faculty members and 500 students from various science streams from different Delhi University Colleges have participated in various workshops conducted by the zebrafish lab facility. Students join the lab as interns and work on research projects. This opportunity provides students with hands on experience wherein they can explore and discover the nature and process of scientific research using zebrafish model system. Zebrafish lab facility also serves as a resource center to provide zebrafish and embryos to other colleges/ departments and research institutes to support teaching and lab practicals.
