Learn about the C. elegans life cycle, feeding habits, neurological structure, and more in this video.

OpenWorm aims to build the first comprehensive computational model of the Caenorhabditis elegans (C. elegans), a microscopic roundworm. With only a thousand cells, it solves basic problems such as feeding, mate-finding and predator avoidance. Despite being extremely well studied in biology, this organism still eludes a deep, principled understanding of its biology.

The C. elegans Behavior Kit allows students to work with and learn about C. elegans, one of the most studied model organisms and the first multicellular organism to have its complete genome sequenced.

Key Features and Benefits

With this kit, students are able to:

• Get hands-on experience with a model eukaryotic organism
• Observe and study the life cycle of C. elegans
• Utilize their microscope skills
• Learn how to subculture
• Learn about genetics and its effect on behavior
• Discover the connection between learning, the daf-18 gene, and the AIY and ASE neurons
