P An early classic experiment by the Nobel Prizewinning embryologist Roger Sperry Meyer

p. 243 the complete family tree of all 558 cells of a newly hatched larva: C. elegans cell family tree from www.wormatlas.org/userguides.html/lineage.htm. The entire wormatlas.org site is a treasure trove of information on these minute creatures. I also strongly recommend the three Nobel Prize speeches on C. elegans from Sydney Brenner, H. Robert Horvitz and John Sulston - Brenner (2003), Horvitz (2003), Sulston (2003) - which are also available to read or view at http://nobelprize.org/nobel_prizes/medicine/laureates/2002/index.html.
