Documentation for the WormJam Genome Scale Model

About Us

WormJam (short for Worm Jamboree) is a platform for community effort towards reconciliation of existing and expansion of the unified C. elegans metabolic reconstruction. With the increasing recognition of metabolism as being of pivotal importance for ageing, development, disease mechanisms as well as evolution, the availability of a community-driven consensus reconstruction of C. elegans metabolism will lay the foundation for bringing C. elegans to the forefront of metabolism research.

As part of this effort, our objectives within the WormJam community are:

We are seeking contributors from all aspects of C. elegans biology. Please join the discussion here.


WormJam was born from the hard work of many people.
