ZFIN is a Model Organism Database that serves as the central repository and web-based resource for zebrafish genetic, genomic, phenotypic and developmental data. Data represented are derived from three primary sources: curation of zebrafish publications, individual research laboratories and collaborations with bioinformatics organizations. Data formats include text, images and graphical representations. A wide-ranging collection of web-based search forms and tools facilitates access to integrated views of these data promoting analysis and scientific discovery. ZFIN includes (i) access to images with associated curated data, (ii) gene expression and phenotype data, (iii) zebrafish models of human diseases, (iv) genomic features and molecular details, (v) a genome browser, (vi) transcripts, (vii) antibodies and (viii) a community wiki for protocols and antibodies. ZFIN welcomes direct data submissions. If you would like to make your unpublished expression or phenotype data available to the community, you can submit this data to ZFIN using Phenote program or contact firstname.lastname@example.org for additional options and support. Additionally, data is downloadable as text files and available in the data mining platform zebrafishmine (zebrafishmine.org).
