The phenotype is the visible manifestation of a genotype, determined by both genetic make-up and environmental influences. All heritable traits, including disease susceptibility, are affected by interactions between mutations in multiple genes. However, little is understood about how genes interact to produce phenotypes.
Human and C. elegans Gene Association
C. elegans is a unique model animal in which genetic interactions can be identified in vivo in the context of a developing organism. C. elegans has phenotypes that can be directly related to human disease genes, with homologs identified for up to 80% of human disease genes. Learn Human and C. elegans Gene Association
The connection Between Human Disease Genes and C. elegans Genes
Furthermore, the cellular and molecular details of the phenotypes of many human diseases and the mutant defects in C. elegans are highly related, making it a powerful experimental model organism for investigating human diseases and allowing researchers to explore and discover new phenotypes that are difficult and expensive to assess using traditional models and methods.
