Real-time egg laying dynamics in Caenorhabditis elegans
TLDR
A liquid culture system to deliver and remove food and pharmacological agents from individually housed worms and counts progeny in real-time, measuring embryo size as well as allowing for embryo recovery from individual mothers for further developmental assays is demonstrated.
Applications of Cold Temperature Stress to Age Fractionate Caenorhabditis elegans: A Simple Inexpensive Technique
TLDR
Cold temperature stress of mixed populations of CE provides a rapid inexpensive means of obtaining three life stage–specific cohorts that allow acquisition of replicate metabolite profiles of changes associated with development, aging, and senescence.
The biology of death in Caenorhabditis elegans
TLDR
This first description of the biology of death in C. elegans implies that the passage from life to death entails a regulated, programmed transition that is amenable to analysis.
Dramatic age-related changes in nuclear and genome copy number in the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans
TLDR
Both systematic loss of nuclei or nuclear DNA, as well as dramatic age‐related changes in nuclear genome copy number are reported and it is proposed that these changes are important pathobiological characteristics of aging nematodes.
The influence of metabolic rate on longevity in the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans.
TLDR
Comparisons of metabolic rate between long-lived and wild-type C. elegans under more optimized conditions indicate that the extended longevity of at least some long-living C. nematode mutants may be due to a reduction in metabolic rate, rather than an alteration of a metabolically independent genetic mechanism specific to aging.
The influence of metabolic rate on longevity in the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans *
TLDR
Comparisons of metabolic rate between long‐lived and wild‐type C. elegans under more optimized conditions indicate that the extended longevity of at least some long-lived C. aristans mutants may be due to a reduction in metabolic rate, rather than an alteration of a metabolically independent genetic mechanism specific to aging.

Synchronous growth and aging of Caenorhabditis elegans in the presence of fluorodeoxyuridine.
TLDR
Treatment with FUdR under carefully controlled conditions is a reasonable way to maintain synchronously aging populations of C. elegans, and age-associated changes seen in controls also occurred in F UdR-treated worms, including atrophy of the gonads, increased pigmentation, sluggishness and increased transparency.
The nematode Caenorhabditis elegans: a new organism for intensive biological study.
TLDR
The nematode Caenorhabditis elegans may, according to some workers, become the Escherichia coli or at least the bacteriophage T4 of the animal world.

Aging in Caenorhabditis Briggsae
TLDR
Results suggest that the ability to osmoregulate and the permeability of the body wall are altered during senescence, which is probably associated with deterioration of the hypodermis organelles.
