Worms, They’re Just Like Us! [Infographic]

Despite being a relatively small and simple organism, the nematode C.elegans and we humans share many similarities at the molecular level. It is for this reason that C. elegans make a good candidate for a model organism. Check out the below infographic to learn more about some of these similarities that make C. elegans an ideal model organism.

Precise Knock-outs for Precise Research

Knockouts are the bread and butter of reverse genetic studies. They allow researchers to study the effects of the absence of a particular gene, protein segment, amino acid, or regulatory element, thereby enabling the researcher to determine their function. Many of the classically used and widely available knockout lines researchers rely on are not precise …
