Dr. Oksana Polesskaya presents at the International Zebrafish Conference.
Dr. Polesskaya presented a poster titled "High-throughput genotyping of zebrafish enables GWAS in outbred EKW population" at the 16th International Zebrafish Conference (IZFC). Coauthors from the Palmer lab includes Dr. Riyan Cheng, Apurva Chitre, Bonnie Lin, Khai-Minh Nguyen, and Dr. Abraham Palmer. This poster presents a cost-effective and high-throughput genotyping method that the Palmer lab has developed in support of a GWAS in zebrafish in order to study the genetic underpinning of complex traits related to anxiety behavior. This method is applied to genotyping large quantities of zebrafish which enables large-scale genetic analysis in this model organism.
