WormBase is a biological database of all genomic and genetic data of the model nematode Caenorhabditis elegans and related nematodes. This is a guide for using WormBase WormBase the genetic and genomic database of the model organism Caenorhabditis elegans and related nematodes. WormBase is developed by an international consortium of researchers and computer scientists.

Getting Started

  • What is WormBase?
  • Machine/Browser compatibility
  • What types of nematodes does WB collect data for?

  • What is an ontology? (What happened to my jargon?)
  • What is GO?
  • How does data get into WormBase?
  • Can I view WormBase data offline?
  • With what other formats are WB data compatible?

  • What is the worm community?
  • Who are the WB database people?
  • Who funds WB?
