1- Describe the stages of C. elegans development. How many stages were you able to identify?
2. Why is it necessary for C. elegans to pass through several larval stages, and how is this type of development different from humans?
3. How does a hermaphrodite produce offspring without mating?
4. What physical (morphological) differences did the mutant worm? What differences in behavior or movement? did you identify the same
characteristics of the mutant C. elegans?
5. For each mutant phenotype , what do you think would be the function of the protein produced by the wild-type gene?
