The Connectome of the C. elegans hermaphrodite (JSE) - The Hermaphrodite Wiring Project

About this project:

We developed an open-source software platform, Elegance, to annotate electron micrographs of the C. elegans hermaphrodite posterior nervous system. Please visit our github page for everything software related. Our image data are publicly visible via WormImage To understand the anatomical localization of these EM series visit our map guide, download our anatomical guide or visit our series description.

Relevant data

JSE Neuronal Connectivity Data

Neurons are partially or fully reconstructed. Maps for all posterior neurons currently not available. Click on neuron name for maps and synapse lists.

We thank John White and Jonathan Hodgkin for their help in transferring archival TEM data from The MRC/LMB to the Hall lab at Einstein for long term curation and study.
