An updated edition of the classic Methods in Cell Biology volume 48, this book emphasizes diverse methods and technologies needed to investigate C. elegans, both as an integrated organism and as a model system for research inquiries in cell, developmental, and molecular biology, as well as in genetics and pharmacology. By directing its audience to tried-and-true and cutting-edge recipes for research, this comprehensive collection is intended to guide investigators of C. elegans for years to come.

  • Diverse, up-to-date techniques covered will be useful to the broadening community of C. elegans researchers for years to come
  • Chapters written by leaders in the field
  • Tried and true methods deliver busy researchers a one-stop compendium of essential protocols
