166-5120-MSDS C. elegans Behavior Kit English

Use the C. elegans behavior kit, a robust experimental system based on a chemotaxis assay, to explore the genetics of learning using both wild-type and mutant worm strains.

With this kit, students are able to:

  • Get hands-on experience with a model eukaryotic organism
  • Observe and study the life cycle of C. elegans
  • Utilize their microscope skills
  • Learn how to subculture
  • Learn about genetics and its effect on behavior
  • Discover the connection between learning, the daf-18 gene, and the AIY and ASE neurons

Note: The wild-type and mutant worms are shipped on dry ice and must be kept on dry ice or at –70°C until ready to plate. Allow for preparation of NGM Lite agar plates (reagents ordered separately) prior to ordering the worms. Wild-type and mutant C. elegans will be shipped overnight at a date specified by the customer.
