How can a tiny worm help us understand how developmental processes evolve?

Professor Te-Wen Lo's lab uses C. elegans (a tiny worm) and related species to understand how developmental processes evolve. For example, how do cells communicate with each other? How do organisms decide whether to become male or female? Student researchers in Professor Lo's lab use a variety of classic Mendelian and cutting-edge gene editing (CRISPR) techniques.
