A system biological analysis of metal induced responses in the zebrafish, Danio rerio.
In the framework of this project we want to perform a comparative study of metal regulation, compartmentalisation and toxicity in the genetically well characterised zebrafish, Danio rerio, for two essential (copper and zinc) and one nonessential (cadmium) metals. We want to determine the similarities and differences in metal handling and resulting responses after exposure under three physiologically different conditions.
