Title C. elegans slug invasion experiment
Downloaded 12 times
Description Experimental analysis of the model nematode C. elegans to invade and persist slug intestines. Field-collected slugs of the genus Arion were exposed to red fluorescent nematodes to find out whether C. elegans can be taken up by the slugs and then survive the slug's intestines. The table shows the original data, including the week of the slug experiment; the day after exposure when the slug was analysed; the part of the slug, which was checked (either intestine or the remainder of the body); the developmental stage of the nematode found in or on the slug; the worm count category (0=0 worms; 1=1-10; 2=11-30; 3=31-50; 4>50) for either the red fluorescent C. elegans (labelled IS274), non-red-fluorescent Caenorhabditis worms, and also other nematodes.

Title C. elegans-slug feces experiment
Downloaded 16 times
Description Experimental analysis of the ability of the model nematode to survive the passage of Arion slugs and be excreted with the slug feces. Single slugs of the genus Arion (first column of table) were exposed to red fluorescent C. elegans (labelled IS274). After defined hours of initial exposure (second column of table), the feces of the slugs were collected (third column of table) and inspected for the presence of the red fluorescent nematodes. The table shows the worm count categories, ranging from 0 (=0 worms), 1 (=1-10 worms), 2 (=11-30 worms), 3 (=31-50 worms), to 4 (>50 worms).
