Limitations in using human samples or performing human experimentation prompt us to seek other organisms to be used as a model in biomedical study. Caenorhabditiselegans(C. elegans) is one of the most powerful model organisms. For the past few decades, many studies in C. elegans have laid a foundation of knowledge regarding numerous biological processes and underlying mechanism of human diseases. In Thailand, however, C. elegans is quite new and not well known in research. This article aims to introduce this small yet tremendously useful invertebrate as a study model for biomedical research to the Thai research community.
Keywords: Caenorhabditiselegans, nematode, animal model
