Dear C. elegans researchers,
Do you use different strains of rhabditid nematodes other than C.
elegans in your NSF-funded research?
If so, could you please respond to me (david.fitch at nyu.edu) with a
phrase descriptive of the project funded by NSF? For the past two
years, we have been trying to get support for improving the NYU
Rhabditidae Collection to provide an excellent online database for our
150 different strains and to cryogenically store all these strains
(many of which do not survive the regular C. elegans freezing
protocol). It would help to know if NSF is supporting other projects
that currently use or have a strong potential to use this resource.
