Unusual Labmates: how C. elegans wormed its way into science stardom
In this mutimedia feature, learn about the classic model organism C. elegans. Researchers frequently turn to C. elegans to learn about not only their biology, but our own. C. elegans is one of the most intimately understood species in biology—the first animal to have its complete genome sequenced or its neural circuitry completely mapped. How did this simple worm become so well studied and a fixture in laboratories around the world? Click here to view the whole story.
