Sauvage, P; Argentina, Médéric; Drappier, J; Senden, Timothy; Siméon, J; Di Meglio, Jean-Marc

Description

Caenorhabditis elegans (C. elegans) is one of the most studied organisms by biologists. Composed of around one thousand cells, easy to culture and to modify genetically, it is a good model system to address fundamental physiological questions and in particular to investigate neuromuscular processes. Many C. elegans mutants can be distinguished by their locomotion phenotype and it then important to understand the biomechanics of their locomotion and in particular the mechanics of their...[Show more]
