About Pristionchus pacificus
Pristionchus pacificus is a small, free-living roundworm found in association with scarab beetles and Colorado potato beetles. It is estimated to have diverged from C. elegans 200-300 million years ago and retains many similar traits. P. pacificus is a model organism for developmental biology particularly in the analysis of vulval formation.
