ABOUT THIS PRODUCT:


You will not believe how similar we are to worms! The genome of the tiny worm, Caenorhabditis elegans, was sequenced and found to be 40% similar to us. It is now used as a model system by researchers to address fundamental questions in developmental biology, neurobiology and behavioral biology. The objective of this experiment is to observe and record the effects of alcohol on normal and alcohol mutant strains of Caenorhabditis elegans.
