About Genetic Techniques

Summary: the generation of mutants and the analysis of subcellular interactions are important. Genetic techniques in C. elegans research enable scientists to construct a working mechanism for a question under investigation.

Mutant analysis

  • Crosses: cross between hermaphrodite& male (contribution needed)
  • Mutagenesis: use mutagens to generate mutants (will be available soon)
  • Screen: search for desired phenotype (contribution needed)
  • Gene mapping (contribution needed)
  • RNAi (will be available soon)

Other techniques used in Conjunction with genetic analysis

These are some techniques that may be used to analyze and understand the consequences of genetic manipulation such as mutagenesis, screen or crosses.
