  • April 12th, 2021: The following 3 items have been added to the NBRP Medaka site as related material items. 1. The 2021 is 100 memorial year for publication of " AIDA, T., 1921 On the inheritance of color in a fresh-water fish Aplocheilus latipes Temmick and Schlegel, with special reference to sex-linked inheritance. Genetics 6: 554-573". This article (Life as my teacher, Tatsuo Aida by Dr. Takeuchi ) is posted with the permission of the author and Ms. Yoshiko Aida, daughter of Dr. Aida. Please take a look at this valuable article about the life of Dr. Tatsuo Aida, the "Giant of Medaka Genetics", which is directly spoken by Dr. Takeuchi, the only disciple of Dr. Aida. 2. and 3. are two books published by Professor Emeritus Kunisuke Takeuchi of Nagoya Gakuin University with the permission of Dr. Kunisuke Takeuchi. Written in simple words, they are all interesting experiments. We hope that you will use it as a reference for student experiments in junior high school and high school.
