Plate Assay to Determine Caenorhabditis elegans Response to Water Soluble and Volatile Chemicals
Authors:  Takashi Murayama and Ichiro N. Maruyama, date: 02/20/2018, view: 6347, Q&A: 0
The nematode Caenorhabditis elegans is widely used for behavioral studies ranging from simple chemosensation to associative learning and memory. It is vital for such studies to determine optimal concentrations of attractive and aversive ...
