Abstract

Methods for electron tomography of the nematode C. elegans are explained in detail, including a brief introduction to specimen preparation, methods for image collection, and a comparison of several general methods for producing dual-axis tomograms, with or without external fi ducial reference objects. New electron tomograms highlight features in software for data display, annotation, and analysis. This chapter discusses the ultrastructural analysis of cells and tissues, rather than molecular studies.
