Caenorhabditis elegans

shiny worms

A model system for conducting toxicology screens and mode of action studies

Caenorhabditis  elegans is arguably the best biologically characterised animal and is a genetically tractable organism par excellence.

See online Worm Book resource

We have developed new approaches that provide an information rich screening tools utilising C. elegans.

Similarity of C. elegans to parasitic nematodes underpins its use for antiparasitic discovery, in Animal Health, Tropical Medicine, and Crop Protection.

Conservation of fundamental biology from C. elegans to human underpins its use for Pharma.

C. elegans has played a pivotal role in delivering the mode of action of all the major drugs used to treat parasitic worm infections in livestock, companion animals and humans.

C. elegans has applications for drug discovery in human medicine and toxicology where it has proven utility as a compound screening tool.
