Model Organisms

This interactive activity from the Dolan DNA Learning Center illustrates several model organisms—including mice, roundworms, and zebrafish—that are commonly used in scientific research. Learn how the small size and short generation time of these model organisms make them ideal candidates for study. The activity also describes additional advantages of each model.

This media asset comes from Model Organisms by Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, Dolan DNA Learning Center.
