"Feel free to look around, or I'm happy to tell you about myself or what we work on."
> look through microscope
You place a petri dish on the microscope and look through the eyepieces. Dozens of nematodes are crawling around. As you focus on one, a wave of vertigo sweeps over you. You are falling... falling... until you find yourself...
INSIDE THE WORM
You are inside a single C. elegans nematode. There are 959 cells here, including 302 neurons and 50 glia. Sensory neurons in the head extend to the nose tip. They appear to make interesting contacts with glia, but you would need to examine them more closely to see the fine structure.
Start typing commands to explore the lab. Some of the things you can do are:
- look through a microscope
- talk with lab members
- go to Max's office
- get our mailing address and phone number
- read some of our papers
> talk to lab members
You introduce yourself to the lab members standing nearby. "Hi. I'm visiting." They introduce themselves: there are two graduate students, Candice and Elizabeth; a postdoc, Karolina; and a lab manager, Megan; plus a technician, Winnie, who helps with culture media. A small glowing box holds the memories of former lab members. Who would you like to talk to?
