Methods for evaluating oocyte viability

1. Methods were developed for evaluating viability for zebrafish and gilthead seabream oocytes at all stages of oogenesis, by vital stains such as trypan blue and thiazolyl blue tetrazoliumbromide.
2. A method was developed for evaluating functional viability of maturing GSB oocytes by promoting germinal vesicle breakdown (GVBD) and hydration during in vitro incubation.
