Modeling Osteoporosis in Fish
On the left are two healthy vertebral bodies in the spine of a medaka fish. The bone matrix (green) is normally mineralized and surrounded by bone-forming cells (magenta). On the right, we can see the situation in an osteoporotic fish.
Cultured Human Neuron

Developing Fish Spines
A single-letter DNA change in a gene that lays down the pattern for a developing spine in zebrafish caused mutant fish to develop backbones that resemble ancestral fish (bottom image).
