Special Issue:
Single cell analysis in C. elegans


For over 50 years, C. elegans has been a powerful system for tracking and discovering the fate and function of individual cells and cell types during development. This special issue highlights some of the exciting new techniques and approaches that continue to keep C. elegans at the forefront of single cell analysis.

CRISPr/Cas (clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats-assiciated) technologies can be employed to induce targeted genetic mutation. In back-to-back articles published in genesis, Blitz et al. and Nakayama et al. each report CRISPr/Cas targeted transgenesis of Xenopus tropicalis pigmentation and eye development genes.
