Oryzias latipes (medaka) is a small freshwater fish native to eastern Asia, primarily Japan, Korea, and China. It is an egg laying, oviparous fish that can survive under a wide range of environmental conditions. Being easy to breed and having a short generation time of 2-3 months, medaka has being extensively used in both genetic and More...
