Good link to read up on the recent completion of the mapping of this wonderful little worm:


The results are published in today's SCIENCE journal, but I couldn't find evidence that they have uploaded it to the web yet.

What is the measure of a C. Elegans? 959 cells, 302 neurons, 19,900 genes, 97 million genetic codes.
