Content

This portal to information on Caenorhabditis elegans provides a tremendous service to the dedicated worm community and is also useful for the nonspecialist. Unique features are a robust search engine that allows one to search all the worm literature (including 'unpublished' information from the Worm Breeders' Gazette and meeting abstracts) and information about C. elegans for nonspecialists. This website also links to all of the other major worm websites, including WormBase (the genome sequence repository and more), the Caenorhabditis elegans Genetics Center (CGC; the strain repository) and pages with information about C. elegans methods, researchers and the newsgroup bionet.celegans, which includes information, discussion and announcements related to C .elegans.

Reporter's comments

Timeliness

The site is updated daily.

Best feature

The literature search feature is excellent due to its comprehensive coverage of all the past and recent literature including meeting abstracts.

Worst feature

Updates on worm lab information were unsatisfactory as some of the links were out-of-date.

Related websites

Related websites WormBase provides a repository of mapping, sequencing and phenotypic information about C. elegans and some closely related nematodes. It includes the essentially complete genomic sequence.
