Strain Genotype Description
JU1373 Caenorhabditis tropicalis wild isolate. Caenorhabditis sp. 11 Isolated by Marie-Anne Felix from rotting torch ginger (Etlingeria elatior) flowers sampled in the island of La Réunion by Valérie Robert and Loïc Sablé in Jan 2008. Hermaphrodite. Culture at 20°C or above.
JU1428 Caenorhabditis tropicalis wild isolate. Caenorhabditis sp. 11 Isolated by Marie-Anne Felix from rotting Duguetia surinamensis fruit, sampled by Patrick Châtelet on the "Petit Plateau" in the Nouragues Forest, French Guyana in May 2008. Hermaphrodite. Culture at 20°C or above.
DP485 Ctr-dpy-10(ed73) II. Homozygotes for this mutation express a dumpy phenotype, while heterozygotes are roller and slightly shorter-than-wildtype in length. This Ctr-dpy-10 mutation will serve as a suitable syntenic marker for chromosome II mutations in C. tropicalis that does not impact the viability or fecundity of the organism. Generated in a C. tropicalis JU1373 background. Hermaphrodite. Culture at 20°C or above.
