Nerve system labeled with GFP

Nerve system labeled with GFP

C. elegans nerve system is labeled with GFP to show the neuronal interconnectivity. C. elegans has a simple and well-defined nerve system that includes 302 neurons. See also more information on C. elegans neuron research. Courtesy of the C. elegans Worm Art Show.

DAPI staining

DAPI staining

A C. elegans with nuclei (DNA) labeled (DAPI stained). Each colored spot (light blue) represents a cell of the C. elegans.

Wild type and mutants

Wild type and mutants

This figure shows one wild type (in upper left corner) and 5 locomotion defect worms. As you can see, the moving patten of mutants is different from wild type. This is to show how locomotion defect can affect worms' motion.
