Worm biology just got $4000 more lucrative. That's the amount a small team of leading worm biologists has put up for a reward to the first person to find a new sister species to Caenorhabditis elegans . The problem is that although the nematode C. elegans was the first animal to have its entire genome sequenced, the other nematodes sequenced since are too distantly related to allow biologists to identify the genetic differences in C. elegans that evolution has retained through natural selection… Expand
Isolation of C. elegans and related nematodes.
TLDR
This chapter focuses on the isolation of Caenorhabditis elegans and close relatives from the wild first, and briefly summarizes the organization and timing of an isolation experiment. Expand
