Caption: C. elegans worms. Confocal laser scanning micrograph of Caenorhabditis elegans worms. Neurons (nerve cells) are green and the digestive tract is red. 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. Bacteria are yellow.
