Abstract: This thesis describes the introduction of the zebrafish animal model to the field of proteomcis. The work presented provided the research community with the first zebrafish spectral library, which is an important first step to introduce zebrafish to proteomics research. This thesis also provides proteomics resourses to automate and simplify the creation of spectral libraries. Furthermore, it describes the use of the software programme CompareMS2 to provide information on similarities across proteomics databases. In addition, the programme has shown to be applicable as a quick first analysis step on large proteomics datasets. Besides, the thesis demonstrates the advantages and applicability of a multidisciplinary approach, addressing multiple omics, exemplified by using two closeley related model species (zebrafish and common carp). Finally, an overview is given on the advantages and disadvantages of the zebrafish animal model within the field of proteomics. The practical approach to zebrafish models in proteomics described in this thesis resulted in experimental protocols, a standard spectral library and data analysis tools, and significantly contributed to maturing of the zebrafish animal model system for proteomics research.
