Our C. elegans behavior and morphology analysis platform measures 26 individual characteristics of the morphology and movement patterns of individual animals. This is a deep phenotypic characterization that is well suited to later analysis using sophisticated machine learning techniques.
Age-matched animals from at least two different groups are compared. The animals are recorded during crawling or swimming. The software identifies individual animals and quantifies many aspects of behavior, including:
Quantified differences in area and forward speed for 7 different genotypes of C. elegans modeling point mutations in STXBP1, a gene important for epilepsy.
