Genetic Engineering Service

Genetic Engineering Service Genetically engineered animal models for the pathological study of various conditions are essential. Since C. elegans became the first multicellular organism to have a completely sequenced genome in 1998, the wealth of information that was generated by this endeavor made genetic analysis even more amenable and more sophisticated.

In order to generate more animal models, and greatly contributed to the research that utilized them, we provide genetic engineering services for exploring practically every aspect of C. elegans biology, which can be tailored to suit the particular needs of your research. We design, build and deliver genetically engineered C. elegans using the methods below.

Why use a C. elegans model system?

  • C. elegans are very small (~1 mm) and the life cycle is short (~two weeks).
  • They are eutelic organisms. There are 959 cells in hermaphrodites and 1031 cells in males.
  • C. elegans are transparent throughout their lives. Therefore, the behavior of individual cells can be followed through its development.
  • You can simply feed animals multiple reagents. Feeding is very simple. RNAi to knockdown genes or dyes to track oxidative stress can be easily implemented through feeding.
  • They can self-replicate and self-fertilize. Besides, a single healthy animal can lay 300-350 progenies in its lifetime.
  • 40% of genes known to be associated with human diseases have orthologs in the C. elegans genome and many signal transduction pathways have been found to be conserved between C. elegans and humans. This makes it a viable system to study the effect of such genes on various cellular and molecular pathways.
  • You can freeze the worms and then defrosted and revived them when needed. This makes it available to easy transport for a far distance or storage for a very long period of time.

All in all, C. elegans is an easy model system for genetic manipulation.
