Thermotaxis navigation behavior

WormBook. 2014 Feb 20;1-10. doi: 10.1895/wormbook.1.168.1.

Abstract

This chapter describes four different protocols used to assay thermotaxis navigation behavior of single, or populations of, C. elegans hermaphrodites on spatial thermal gradients within the physiological temperature range (15-25°C). A method to assay avoidance of noxious temperatures is also described.
