"Provides information for researchers working with Caenorhabditis elegans, giving basic background on the organism's natural history, anatomy, life cycle, and evolution, and then detailing methods for using C. elegans in research. Tells how to obtain and grow C. elegans, and discusses the C. elegans genome project, transformation of C. elegans, reverse genetic techniques, analysis of /5(4). C. elegans II attempts to provide a core of knowledge that builds upon the first book produced by the C. elegans community, The Nematode Caenorhabditis elegans, edited by W.B. Wood and the Community of C. elegans Researchers (). ''C. elegans Atlas and WormAtlas provide an invaluable aid to the study of this important research subject and will make a vital contribution to future progress with this model system.'' --Genetics Research''With this gorgeous volume, the authors and publisher have provided the C. elegans, community with a vital foundation for research into development, physiology, genetics, and : Spiral-bound. C. elegans II, 2nd edition Cold Spring Harbor Mongraph Series, Vol. 33 Editors: Donald L Riddle, Thomas Blumenthal, Barbara J Meyer, and James R Priess.

Caenorhabditis Elegans has been a popular model organism for biological research for over thirty years and has been used to investigate many aspects of animal development, for example apoptosis, the Hox genes, signal transduction pathways, and the development of the nervous system. It has recently taken on new importance with the publication of the entire genome sequence in An updated edition of the classic Methods in Cell Biology vol this book emphasizes diverse methods and technologies needed to investigate C. elegans, both as an integrated organism and as a model system for research inquiries in cell, developmental, and molecular biology, as well as in genetics and directing its audience to tried-and-true and cutting-edge recipes for.

In Sydney Brenner chose the free-living nematode Caenorhabditis elegans as a promising model system for a concerted genetic, ultrastructural, and behavioral attack on the development and function of a simple nervous system. Since then, with the help of a growing number of investigators, knowledge about the biology of "the worm" has accumulated at a steadily accelerating pace to the extent.

  Abstract. WormBook is an open-access, online collection of original, peer-reviewed chapters on the biology of Caenorhabditis elegans and related WormBook was launched in June with 12 chapters, it has grown to over chapters, covering nearly every aspect of s research, from Cell Biology and Neurobiology to Evolution and by: Description Studies of the cells and genes of the nematode C. elegans have become a cornerstone of current biology. A classic Cold Spring Harbor monograph, The Nematode Caenorhabditis elegans, described the basic genetics, anatomy and development of the organism. Now, in that authoritative tradition, comes C. elegans II-- not a second edition but a book that breaks new ground and defines.
