The 97-megabase genomic sequence of the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans reveals over 19,000 genes. More than 40 percent of the predicted protein products find significant matches in other organisms. There is a variety of repeated sequences, both local and dispersed. The distinctive distribution of some repeats and highly conserved genes provides evidence for a regional organization of the chromosomes. 
The use of functional genomics in C. elegans for studying human development and disease
TLDR
How C. elegans can contribute to understanding of the function of genes involved in human development and disease is discussed.
The draft genome sequence of the nematode Caenorhabditis briggsae, a companion to C. elegans
The publication of the draft genome sequence of Caenorhabditis briggsae improves the annotation of the genome of its close relative Caenorhabditis elegans and will facilitate comparative genomics and
Caenorhabditis Elegans—Applications to Nematode Genomics
TLDR
The application of techniques and other advances that are helping to understand about not only the biology of this important model organism but also the entire phylum Nematoda are described.
A new gene on C. elegans chromosome V
TLDR
The discovery of a new gene in a region of the genome that is currently not associated with any annotated gene or feature is reported and RNA-seq and RT-PCR evidence that this gene is expressed at detectable levels, and that it is alternatively spliced.
