Zygogen Provides Curis with Transgenic Zebrafish Technology | GenomeWeb

NEW YORK, Feb 21 - Zygogen of Atlanta will provide Curis with its

discovery, Zygogen said Wednesday.

Zebrafish are similar to knockout mice in that they can serve as model
organisms for finding genome-based drug targets, but they offer the
