Caenorhabditis are usually thought of as soil nematodes, happily living in compost heaps.
Scientists have discovered a new role for a biological pathway that not only signals the body's metabolic response to nutritional changes but also affects lifespan.
Caenorhabditis elegans is a species of parasitic roundworm in the Nematoda phylum. It can be found in temperate regions, in many different areas of the world. It prefers to reside in nutrient rich soils. Its scientific name is derived from the Greek terms Caeno, meaning recent, rhabditis, meaning rod-like, and the Latin term elegans, which means elegant.
