Caenorhabditis elegans is a model organism for studying genetics and neuroscience C. elegans is frequently studied to understand how genes and the environment interact to produce new phenotypes. We take advantage of an organism-wide stress response and genetic tools that provide an excellent model for studying how phenotypes are impacted by stress.
