Volume 14 No.3 (Jun 1 1996) of the "Worm Breeder's Gazette", an amateur journal for researchers working on the nematode worm Caenorhabditis elegans.
The ‘Worm Breeder’s Gazette’ was an amateur journal for researchers working on the nematode worm (Caenorhabditis elegans). The nematode worm is a bacteria-eating round worm which lives in soil and is often found in compost heaps. C. elegans can be either male or a hermaphrodite – meaning it exhibits the sexual features of both a male and a female. It can therefore self-fertilise. It is easy to breed, store and analyse which makes it an excellent laboratory subject. C. elegans has been studied extensively by scientists since the 1970s, particularly within cell development research. The ‘Worm Breeder’s Gazette’ was published in the US by the University of Minnesota. Volume 14 No. 3 was published in June 1996. It is the yellow copy in this group shot.
