When you write a paper, wherever possible cite the original, primary papers so the authors get credit. If you have used data amalgamated by WormBase, then please cite WormBase with the release version.
Check out the latest chapter in WormBook, GENETICS: Developmental Plasticity and Cellular Reprogramming in Caenorhabditis elegans, by Joel Rothman and Sophie Jarriault.
If you’d like to read about the latest developments at WormBase—literature curation efforts, features about the web interface, data mining options for users, and how WormBase as a founding member, interacts with the Alliance of Genome Resources to aid in cross-species data comparisons, check out our paper in Nucleic Acids Research.
Love worms and want to serve your community? Join the CGC and be instrumental in distributing C. elegans to the worldwide research community. After 27 years of dedication to fulfilling our C. elegans needs, Theresa Stiernagle is retiring. The CGC seeks a replacement with significant worm experience (picking, scoring phenotypes, familiarity with interpreting genotypes, etc.), extreme attention to detail, and the ability to work efficiently and independently. An official job posting will be forthcoming, but in the meantime, inquiries can be made at email@example.com.
