Abstract

This project aimed to model the embryonic development of Caenorhabditis elegans from fertilization to hatching to serve as a dynamic research and educational aid that could be added to or modified by future research. Existing knowledge from current literature and mutant strains generated in lab were used to design and refine the processes modeled. The simulation was rendered using metaballs and marching cubes to provide a three-dimensional computer simulation that can help further understanding of the development process.
