Caption: Dr John White (born August 9th 1943), one of the British biochemists studying the nematode worm Caenorhabditis elegans at the Laboratory of Molecular Biology in Cambridge. His work, part of an investigation into how genes affect behaviour, culminated in a complete 'wiring diagram' being drawn up of the nervous system of this simple worm. Here, he is using a scanning optical micro- scope linked to a 4-dimensional image archiving system, a computer which automatically records a time-lapse sequence of pictures and stores them on an optical disc. The screen display shows two C. elegans embryo cells in the process of dividing normally & a third (upper left) which is mutating. Reference: MICROCOSMOS, page 201, and Brad Amos' file.
