Name:   Free-living soil nematode (Caenorhabditis elegans)
Copyright:   Copyright 2004 Dennis Kunkel Microscopy, Inc.
Description:   Caption: Free-living soil nematode (Caenorhabditis elegans). C. elegans is as primitive organism that shares many of the essential biological characteristics that are central problems of human biology. It is small roundworm, only about 1mm in length, and lives in the soil amongst rotting vegetation. In the laboratory it is grown in agar Petri dishes and is feed bacteria. The adult consists of a tube with the exterior cuticle which inside contains two smaller tubes, the pharynx and gut, and the reproductive system. Most of the volume of the animal is taken up by the reproductive system. Two sexes occur - a self-fertilizing hermaphrodite and a male. There are 959 somatic cells in the hermaphrodite of which 300 are neurons. The nervous systems includes sense organs in the head which mediate responses to taste, smell, temperature and touch. The development and function of this nematode is encoded by an estimated 17,800 distinct genes. Hundreds of scientists are studying the biology of the nematode C. elegans.
