In December 1998, the genome of the small soil-dwelling nematode Caenorhabditis elegans became the most recent model system to fall to the collective efforts of the Genome Project 1, its complete 97 Mbp genome taking its place alongside those of Saccharomyces cerevisiae, Escherichia coli and numerous microorganisms. The availability of the C. elegans sequence means that, for the first time, the complete genome of a fully functional multicellular animal is available to the scientific community, along with a rich infrastructure of genetic, behavioral, physiological and developmental data about the organism.
