This is a direct link to BABEC’s C. elegans Labs page. There are modules of hands-on activities, each with a student and teacher guide version. Current modules include “Meet the worms!”, “Synchronization”, “chemotaxis assay”, and “The Effect of Alcohol on Worms “.

Mutant Phenotype Analysis

Dominika Bienkowska

What is a wild type or a mutant? How do wild type and mutant develop similarly or differently? This module includes movies of wild type and 5 mutant C. elegans early embryonic development. These movies are in DIC (Differential Interference Contrast) format with magnification about 100X.

Serial Block Face Imaging of C. elegans with 3View

Joel Mancuso

Serial Block Face Imaging in the SEM, scans serial images of a resin embedded TEM like sample in the SEM.  By placing an ultramicrotome inside the chamber of a SEM, 50nm is removed from the surfaced, and the blockface is rescanned. This process is automated, and produces perfectly aligned serial images. This data set contains approximately 300 serial images that were acquired in 5 hours.
