Male Tail
 Morphogenesis

(Still under construction.  Please bear with us!)

Click here to see how the 4 tail tip cells of C. elegans are constructed.

Click here to see how the 4 tail tip cells of C. elegans are put together.

Click here to see how the 4 tail tip cells fuse and retract during male tail morphogenesis.

Click here to see how the entire wild type C. elegans male tail develops.

Click here to see a mutant in which only the tail tip fails to retract during male tail morphogenesis.  Mutants like this help us define genes responsible for morphogenesis.

For more information about our work on genetic and developmental mechanisms of male tail morphogenesis, please see Nguyen et al. 1999)
