Cloning and characterizing the C. elegans cell death gene.
Comparisons between C. elegans and human cell death genes
How he ended up in Bob Horvitz's lab working on cell death.
Purpose of programmed cell death.
Descriptions of how cell death gene products interact.
What happens to those cells that don't die?
Leland Hartwell describes how cells regulate the timing of growth and cell division. Bob Horvitz and Mike Hengartner explain control mechanisms for cell death.
The microscopic roundworm, C. elegans, is an excellent model for understanding how cells divide, develop, and take on specialized tasks in higher (eukaryotic) organisms.
Mike Hengartnerand Bob Horvitz used C. elegans to work out the mechanism of programmed cell death.
