Caenorhabditis elegans This worm is a well-studied model organism for developmental biology, systems biology, and genetics Kingdom: Eukaryota. Variation. This species currently has no variation database. However you can process your own variants using the Variant Effect Predictor: Variant Effect. Caenorhabditis elegans is a free-living (not parasitic), transparent nematode ( roundworm), about 1 mm in length, that lives in temperate. The genome sequence of C. elegans is essentially complete.
The sequence follows those of viruses, several bacteria, and a yeast (1, 2) and is the first from a . C. elegans was the first multicellular organism to have its whole genome sequenced, and as of , the only organism to have its connectome (neuronal .
The new comparative genomic analysis between C. elegans and humans, OrthoList 2 (OL2), was just published early online in GENETICS. OL2 comes with a. The Caenorhabditis elegans genome sequence is now complete, fully contiguous telomere to telomere and totaling ,, bp.
The sequence has . Around the Genomes. The C. elegans Genome Sequencing Project. Mary Berks 1,3 and the C. elegans Genome Mapping and. Sequencing Consortium 1,2.
The ~ MB genome of C. elegans codes for ~20, protein-coding genes many of which are required for the function of the nervous system, composed of. Caenorhabditis elegans This worm is a well-studied model organism for developmental biology, systems biology, and genetics Kingdom: Eukaryota.
