Caption: Caenorhabditis elegans nematode worm, light micrograph. This soil-dwelling hermaphrodite nematode worm is one of the most studied animals in biological and genetic research. A tendency to reproduce by self-fertilization (resulting in identical offspring), along with the short time taken to reach maturity, make this tiny worm an ideal subject. Scientists have drawn up a 'wiring diagram' of its nervous system, studied the development of each of its 959 component cells and produced a full map of its genes. Magnification: x180 when printed 10cm high.
