is fish immunology system a good model for human immunology system?
Dear newsgroup members,
I am an undergraduate student who has an interest in immunology field. I
have read quite a lot of articles about immunology lately which increase my
interest a lot in this area. Therefore this semester I take the "real"
immunology course. Next semester I have to do an internship and I am
planning to do my internship in immunology. I searched for available
projects and find an interesting project about immunology system in fish.
Actually I am interested more in exploring human immune system since there
are a lot of important and exciting topics in human area. Thus, I need your
advise now. Is fish immunology a good model for human immune system? I know
that fish is not the same with human, but can I use my knowledge about fish
immune system to apply it in human system? Will it be useful and are they
have similar basic immune systems and mechanisms?
