Welcome to WormImage!
Here you can view and download thousands of unpublished electron
micrographs and associated data. These images have been generated
by several labs in the C. elegans
the MRC, the Hall lab (Center for C. elegans
and the Culotti and Riddle labs. We welcome further contributions
of archival image data from other C. elegans
labs (see submission).
WormImage is still under development. Any feedback, complaint or
suggestion is very welcome! And many more images will be added to
this database at regular intervals. The current features include:
You can search
on WormImage for tissues of interest for wild type adult hermaphrodites,
embryos, larvae, males and for a limited number of mutants. In
cases where the animal has been reconstructed from serial sections
on prints, we will translate the print annotations for many cell
types of interest.
The results of your search will initially
be displayed as a series of thumbnails for easy viewing from which
you can select larger files to download.
to view the records currently stored in database. The index
list is sorted by categories of worm name, development stage and
portion of body.
Review to add your own comment to each individual image,
If you choose to make them public, comments will be posted as
added archival data for that image; alternately they will be saved
as private with limited access to a selected audience.
