C. elegans Nematode Lapel PinRegular price €72.00
This elegant lapel pin/brooch is inspired by mating Caenorhabiditis elegans nematodes. C. elegans is a non-parasitic nematode worm that is used extensively by biologists as a model organism. This worm has been the subject of many neurobiological studies, including a project in the zero gravity environment of the International Space Station to gain insight into the genetic basis of muscle atrophy. The C. elegans model depicts mating between the larger, hermaphroditic worm and the smaller, male worm.
The pin is 4.4 cm (1.7 inches) long and can be worn as a lapel pin or a brooch.
The pin is 3D printed in solid sterling silver, bronze, or 14K gold plated brass.
