Why C. elegans are ideal for Disease Modeling [Infographic]

Did you know C. elegans are an ideal model for disease modeling? It may seem unlikely that such a tiny animal would work well for modeling and studying human diseases, but we believe in their power and want you to as well, so we’ve outlined a few of their strengths so you can learn more about the benefits of using C. elegans for disease modeling.
