Scientists have created a see-through Zebrafish to help conduct research on how cancer spreads inside an organism. The entire fish is see-through, from bones to organs making it possible for the first time to study the disease without dissection.
It was engineered at the Children's Hospital, Boston and has let researchers observe in real time how melanoma cells spread to the skin from their origin in the abdominal cavity.
