Species C. sp 36
GenotypeCaenorhabditis sp 36 wild isolate.
DescriptionCaenorhabditis sp 36 wild isolate. Male-female strain. Maintain by mating. Maintain at 25C. A gonochoristic species isolated from adult weevils (Niphades variegatus), with whom they appear to be tightly associated during its life cycle. A genome comparison highlighted that C. sp. 36 has the smallest genome so far sequenced in the elegans supergroup, despite of being closely related to the largest genome species, C. japonica.
