  • Caenorhabditis elegans is a worm that has been extensively studied, and it is today an accepted model in many different biological fields. C. elegans is cheap to maintain, it is transparent, allowing easy localization studies, and it develops from egg to adult in around 4 days. Many mutants, available to the scientific community, have been developed. This has facilitated the study of the role of particular genes in many cellular pathways, which are highly conserved when compared with higher… CONTINUE READING
