C. Elegans (nematodes) in Space?

Posted on February 23, 2017 at 11:51am 1 Comment

I am a university student who might have an opportunity to join a team sending a small rocket into space and it contains a couple experiments, one of which will be a culture of C. elegans. I know a bit about c. elegans and that they are sent to space as models of simple life, but I was wondering if someone could point me towards more profound space research on them.

Does anyone know about the experiments involving Caenorhabditis Elegans in space and what research could be done…
