OpenWorm is a labor of love for a group of dedicated volunteers around the world. Find out more at OpenWorm.org.

What's New in Version 1.0.0
Much improved navigation and minor bug fixes.
Great Idea/Great App
I've been showing this app to everyone I know. I even made an animation playing around with it. Can't wait for more species and processes. A+ work!
App in progress
Great app for anyone interested in c. Elegans anatomy. Unfortunately it is very unstable. Continually crashes.
