Caption: C. elegans worm. Differential interference contrast micrograph of a Caenorhabditis elegans larva. The head is at bottom left. The lawn of Escherichia coli bacteria that the worm feeds on in the laboratory can be seen in the background. C. elegans 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.
