WELCOME to the wiki of the Caenorhabditis evolution community!
With a growing community of scientists using Caenorhabditis nematodes for evolutionary biology and ecology, this wiki aims to informally share resources and information regarding the evolution of C. elegans and other species of the Caenorhabditis genus. This wiki is not part of Wormbase per se and cannot be cited as such. Much of the information on this wiki is unpublished. Please contribute! (you need to register first, independently of your Wormbase account)
Relevant WORMBOOK sections: Evolution and Ecology Nematodes other than C. elegans Methods for nematode species other than C. elegans
Here is the growing LIST OF AVAILABLE CAENORHABDITIS SPECIES and the state of their genome projects. Note the new species NAMES.
For information on geographic distribution, sample origin and availability, enter the strain name in Wormbase, for example NIC42 or consult the following strain databses: CGC Cutter lab map Braendle lab Felix lab.
For information on phylogeny and systematics: Fitch lab Rhabditina DB.
