Spread and Transmission of Bacterial Pathogens in Experimental Populations of the Nematode Caenorhabditis elegans


Caenorhabditis elegans is frequently used as a model species for the study of bacterial virulence and innate immunity. In recent years, diverse mechanisms contributing to the nematode's immune response to bacterial infection have been discovered. Yet despite growing interest in the biochemical and molecular basis of nematode-bacterium associations, many… (More)
