Observing and genotyping C. elegans

I had a fun day yesterday doing the "C. elegans" practical, which is part of the first-year labs. In the practical, we got to look at live C. elegans and also set up some PCR reactions to genotype some wild-type and mutant C. elegans. It was all fun stuff.

Below is a movie we shot of the worms on the day of the practical and some stills from the microscopes.
