NSF-funded comparative studies using other nematode species

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.

Many thanks!
Dave Fitch
