Definition Acquires, maintains, and distributes genet Acquires, maintains, and distributes genetic stocks and information about stocks of the small free-living nematode Caenorhabditis elegans for use by investigators initiating or continuing research on this genetic model organism. A searchable strain database, general information about C. elegans, and links to key Web sites of use to scientists, including WormBase, WormAtlas, and WormBook are available.<br /> Services Provided:<br /> * Animals: the CGC's collection of more than 11,273 strains includes one allele of each mapped gene, all available chromosome rearrangements, and selected multiple-mutant stocks for genetic mapping. Certain transgenic strains also are available, including strains that express various green fluorescent protein (GFP) reporter fusions. The CGC also has stocks of nematode species closely related to C. elegans and bacterial strains necessary for nematode growth and for performing RNA interference experiments.<br /> * Nomenclature Information: recommended guidelines and persons to contact for specific questions about C. elegans genetic nomenclature can be found at the website. Databases of gene names and laboratory strain designations with allele codes are also available at this site. ele codes are also available at this site.
