| C. elegans
|Maintain this strain at 15C so that you can score for dead eggs (3 fold stage). At 15C, both hets and e286 homozygotes move reasonably well. Place single animals on plates and allow them to lay eggs for a day; then remove the parent and score the plates the next day for dead eggs. At 25C, both hets and e286 homozygotes will be Unc and Egl; dead eggs will remain inside the parent worm.
