DNA Damage Sensitivity Assays in Caenorhabditis elegans
Authors:  Hyun-Min Kim and Monica P. Colaiácovo, date: 06/05/2015, view: 9202, Q&A: 0
C. elegans has served as a genetically tractable multicellular model system to examine DNA damage-induced genotoxic stress which threatens genome integrity. Importantly, the high degree of conservation shared between worms and humans offers ...
