C. elegans Nematode Tie BarRegular price €104.00
This elegant tie bar 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 tie bar is 4.3 cm (1.7 inches) long and fits most men's ties.
The tie bar is 3D printed in solid sterling silver, bronze or 14K gold plated brass.
