Transparent fish gives scientists clear view

The fish, a breed Zebrafish named Casper, has granted researchers further insight into how diseases, especially cancer, act in living organisms, not just in a test tube or a dissected animal.

"It's the difference between watching a video and just seeing a snapshot," said Richard White, a clinical fellow in the Stem Cell Program at Children's Hospital Boston.
White created the new breed of Zebrafish, described in the Feb. 7 issue of Cell Stem Cell, a journal. White said he can read a newspaper through the transparent fish and see its beating heart as well as other organs.
