Zebrafish have been found to be a premier model organism in biological and regeneration research. However, the comprehensive cell compositions and molecular dynamics during tissue regeneration in zebrafish remain poorly understood. Here, we utilized Microwell-seq to analyze more than 250,000 single cells covering major zebrafish cell types and constructed a systematic zebrafish cell landscape. We revealed single-cell compositions for 18 zebrafish tissue types covering both embryo and adult stages. Single-cell mapping of caudal fin regeneration revealed a unique characteristic of blastema population and key genetic regulation involved in zebrafish tissue repair. Overall, our single-cell datasets demonstrate the utility of zebrafish cell landscape resources in various fields of biological research.
