Our pilot screens predict that this large-scale approach will uncover a broad assortment of several hundred mutants. The specificity of the phenotype will vary with the site and extent of the genetic lesion. Many phenotypes will allow us to assign functions to certain nuclei, pathways, or cell types. Some mutants will remain puzzling, particularly those with no detectable anatomical disruption. As a tool for the screen, mutagenized males will be crossed into a line of transgenic fish, which express green fluorescent protein in retinal Studies 29 axons.
