  author={Zheng Wang and David R Sherwood},
  journal={Methods in cell biology},
With unique genetic and cell biological strengths, C. elegans has emerged as a powerful model system for studying many biological processes. These processes are typically regulated by complex genetic networks consisting of genes. Identifying those genes and organizing them into genetic pathways are two major steps toward understanding the mechanisms that regulate biological events. Forward genetic screens with various designs are a traditional approach for identifying candidate genes. The… CONTINUE READING
