Submitting Data to ZFIN
Data in ZFIN are primarily manually curated from peer-reviewed publications or through data exchanges and submissions from other databases. With the increased production of research data, ZFIN aims to provide the zebrafish research community with support for direct submission of data sets that cannot be easily represented in publications. A detailed description of the process for direct submission of data is presented in Howe et al. Methods in Cell Biology Vol. 135, 2016, pg 483-508. In addition, the templates including the necessary set of information for each data type are made available here.
ZebraShare is intended to help establish fruitful collaborations by sharing mutant fish lines, and information about these mutants, particularly when authors do not otherwise see a clear path to publication.
Submit a proposed gene name
Propose and reserve a name and symbol for a gene in accordance with current guidelines. Search existing records in ZFIN for potential naming conflicts prior to submission.
Submit a proposed mutant/Tg line name
Propose and reserve a name for a mutant or transgenic fish line in accordance with current guidelines. Search existing records in ZFIN for potential naming conflicts prior to submission.
Submit a fish line to ZIRC
Submit fish strains to the Zebrafish International Resource Center.
