The soil nematode, Caenorhabditis elegans is widely used as model organisms for nearly every aspect of biology. Various disciplines employ C.elegans as model organisms such as Biology, Neuroscience, Toxicology as well as Ecology. Commonalities of the genetic pathways in C.elegans with other organisms along with humans led to significant discoveries in a wide variety of research fields, including development, signal transduction, cell death, and ageing.

Keywords: Biological model, Caenorhabditis elegans, developmental biology
