Using C. elegans to study parasitism

C. elegans is one of the most powerful model organisms and has been used to unravel several key genetic pathways. The C. elegans nematode has been used in parasitology research due to its high genetic tractability as a model organism. Their use in understanding parasitology is considered mainly due to the ease of in vitro culture, short generation …

A New Era of Transgenics in Parasitic Nematodes

One of the most commonly known nematodes in the scientific community is Caenorhabditis elegans. Ever since Sydney Brenner introduced it as a model organism to study nervous system, the use of C. elegans in various disciplines of biological research has yielded significant results pertinent to the understanding of cell biology, genetics, developmental biology, and neurobiology. …
