We are continuing to experience great success in acquiring data for our Prisitonchus connectome project. Here’s an image showing how far into the worm we are with our current dataset. In it you can see the terminal bulb of the pharynx, and if you look very closely you can see the amphid commissures, which contain most of the nose sensory organs. The image is taken very close to the duct for the secretory/excretory system, which can also be seen very nicely in the image. It looks like we should be able to switch to worrying about the tremendous task of describing all of the synaptic connectivity in January. Metta and I have been working very hard to collect these data as fast as we can.. in fact I’m sitting at the electron microscope while typing this post! I’ve added a couple of images to my Pristionchus Flickr album HERE.
