Introduction

Caenorhabditis brenneri is a gonochoristic (male-female) species closely related to C. elegans (i.e., a fellow member of the Elegans group).

Because C. brenneri was only formally named in 2007, but had been studied for many years before then, it has had several formal or informal synonyms, such as "Caenorhabditis species 4" ("C. sp. 4"), "C. sp. CB5161" (or just "CB5161"), and "C. sp. PB2801" (or just "PB2801"). "CB5161" and "PB2801" are actually the names of commonly used C. brenneri strains.

C. brenneri has the following Web sources of information:

1. A species description article (PDF format) in Zootaxa.

2. A genome browser gateway for the current assembly (release 4.0) at WormBase.

3. A genome browser gateway at the UC Santa Cruz Genome Center.

4. A review of Caenorhabditis phylogeny, which includes some discussion of C. brenneri, at WormBook.

5. A WormBook review of Caenorhabditis ecology (including that of C. brenneri).

6. Live strains available from the CGC stock center.

7. A genome sequence page at the Washington University Genome Sequencing Center.

8. An article in Wikipedia.
