Caption: C. elegans worms. Differential interference contrast micrograph of an adult Caenorhabditis elegans worm (centre) surrounded by C. elegans larvae hatching from eggs. This is a soil-dwelling hermaphrodite nematode worm and one of the most studied animals in biological and genetic research. A tendency to reproduce by self-fertilisation (resulting in identical offspring), along with the short time taken to reach maturity, make this tiny worm an ideal subject.
