One-stop C. elegans Solution

SunyBiotech is delicated to establishing an one-stop C. elegans solution to benefit the researchers who do not work with C. elegans, but would like to use C. elegans as supportive materials to their study. 

Why choose C. elegans?

Ÿ   Well-known biology: A completely sequenced genome that shares extensive homology with that of human, powerful genetic and reverse genetic tools greatly facilitates the study.

Ÿ   Small size and transparent body: Easy to observe under microscope.

Ÿ   Short lifespan: Greatly shorten the experimental period.

Ÿ   In vivo model: It is a organism with multiple cells.

Ÿ   Cost-friendly 

What we can do for you?

If you have analyzed the gene function in model animals other than C. elegans, and want to know whether this gene has conserved gene function in C. elegans, we could help you do the following research: 

  • Find homologous gene and conserved amino acids

  • Gene mutation/ knock-out and rescue

  • Analyze the phenotype after RNAi / overexpression

  • Fluorescent protein tag and localization

  • Different phenotype assays (with/ without compounds treatment/ condition changes)

       1)  Fecundity assays (to test the embryonic lethality, larval arrest ratio and brood size).

       2)  Body length measurements

       3)  Life span assays
