Earlier there was a discussion about visualizing the brain of the zebrafish.

Assuming the barreleye fish can be raised in captivity, I could imagine some tremendous opportunities for research.

The object on the right may look like a pineapple gummi bear, but it's actually a mouse embryo that's been treated with a new chemical reagent that turns biological tissue transparent. Compare it to the embryo on the left, and you'll get a sense of why scientists are heralding this discovery as a revolution in the field of optical imaging.
