breeding for super geniuses ():
a guide to genetic mapping in C. elegans.
Laboratory in Genetics: Description & Introduction (13 KB & 11 KB ): This is a project-based laboratory activity. Students will be engaged in activities of "forward genetics" and "functional genomics" (utilizing RNAi). For detailed lab procedure, please contact Dr. E. Jane Hubbard at New York University.
protocols with tips (10 KB ):

Starter Kit ():
worm goes to school introduces this kit that includes basic information
about manipulating C. elegans, microscopy and worm genetics.
Genotype v.s Phenotype module (hosted at LOCI): apply research resources including C. elegans movies, images, DNA, protein data to help students understand the relationship between genotype and phenotype.
