Caption: C. elegans worm. Differential interference contrast microscopy of Caenorhabditis elegans worms feeding on a 'lawn' of Escherichia coli bacteria. Eggs are visible within the worm's body. 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.
