- Caenorhabditis elegans, a free-living nematode that feeds on soil microorganisms, is the most abundant soil-dwelling invertebrate that occupied a key position in terrestrial ecosystem by influencing energy transfer and nutrient cycling. It is a simple multicellular eukaryote with its genome first completely sequenced and its cell lineage well described. As a simple and welldefined genetic model, C. elegans has gained increasing popularity among scientists to study the molecular mechanism of emerging materials.
