ScholarBank@NUS Repository. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.febslet.2009.09.051||Abstract:||The nematode worm Caenorhabditis elegans (C. elegans) is increasingly popular as a model organism for aging studies as well as for testing antioxidants and other compounds for effects on longevity. However, results in the literature are sometimes confusing and contradictory [1-4]. This review introduces C. elegans as a model organism, discusses aspects that make it attractive for aging and antioxidant research, and addresses some problems and potential artifacts. © 2009 Federation of European Biochemical Societies.||Source Title:||FEBS Letters||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/28741||ISSN:||00145793||DOI:||10.1016/j.febslet.2009.09.051|
