    The Natural History of Model Organisms: Nothobranchius furzeri, an 'instant' fish from an ephemeral habitat

    Martin Reichard, Matej Polačik
    The turquoise killifish from ephemeral pools in African savannah combines extremely short lifespan with a standard vertebrate body plan – ideal attributes for a laboratory animal.

    Intra-species differences in population size shape life history and genome evolution

    David Willemsen et al.
    Population genetics in turquoise killifish wild populations reveals how small population size and genetic drift determine the accumulation of deleterious gene variants leading to short lifespan.

    Regulation of life span by the gut microbiota in the short-lived African turquoise killifish

    Patrick Smith et al.
    Resetting a young gut microbiota in middle-aged individuals extends life span and slows aging in the naturally short-lived turquoise killifish, a new vertebrate model organism to study how the microbiota affects the aging process.

    celsr1a is essential for tissue homeostasis and onset of aging phenotypes in the zebrafish

    Chunmei Li et al.
    The use of forward genetic screens in zebrafish identifies a new model of vertebrate aging, defining the regulating of the onset of aging phenotypes through maintenance of progenitor cell populations.
