About the DANIO-CODE programme

  DANIO-CODE is an international collaborative effort that aims to annotate the functional elements of the zebrafish     genome.

Zebrafish are increasingly used to successfully model human disease, to screen drugs and to study environmental toxicity in addition to being a model for embryonic development. Zebrafish genome is the third most complete but further annotation is essential to better realize the power of this model organism in diverse areas of biomedical research and to further strengthen its role in biomedical research. 

DANIO-CODE partners work together to provide a central resource of publicly available data and genome annotation of the zebrafish genome. DANIO-CODE combines a large variety of genome wide datasets including protein-coding and non-coding transcribed genome elements, non-coding functional elements such as cis-regulatory modules and associated epigenetic features. 

DANIO-CODE was established at a workshop held in Imperial College London in December 2014 (see meeting report published in Zebrafish) where members of the zebrafish genomics research community and previous contributors to ENCODE and FANTOM genome annotation projects identified key aims.
