Penn Researchers Shed Light on the Roundworm’s Curious Swimming Behavior

The round worm Caenorhabditis elegans, a nematode, is a puzzling creature. A previous study at the University of Pennsylvania established that, in some cases, these nematodes are actually counter-current and swim upstream rather than with the flow of liquid as a result of hydrodynamic forces. Another study indicated that they tend to accumulate next to […]
