A few years ago, when I was brewing up C. elegans and P. redivivus libraries, I also constructed a genomic lambda EMBL-4 library from a wild strain, WS9-6, that I had gotten from Victor Ambros. This male/female strain is morphologically similar to C. elegans, but is not cross-fertile with either C. elegans or C. remanei. This spring I am planning to fish some C. elegans genes out of this library as an exercise for a molecular genetics laboratory course. If anyone has a gene that they might like isolated from this library (for evolutionary comparisons, etc.) please let me know.
