PMID: 29386137
DOI: 10.1016/j.celrep.2017.12.091

[…] restrictive 25°c in the evening before the experiment approximately 7 hr before starvation was initiated., tracking and analysis were performed using customized matlab scripts that are based on the parallel worm tracker, as described previously (). we distinguish three behavioral states: an active state, during which the worm is moving; a quiescent state when the worm is completely still; […]

[…] 1 min using a toupcam (touptek photonics, china) equipped on an m165 fc microscope (leica, germany). movies were inverted creating a white background/black worm format for further analysis using the parallel worm tracker []. statistical analysis was performed using one-way anova (graphpad prism 5, graphpad software, usa). p values <0.05 were considered significant., the relative expression […]

[…] by viewing or recording worm movements through a stereomicroscope. numerous automated programs facilitate the analysis of digitally recorded data, including worm tracker 2.0, optotracker, the parallel worm tracker, nemo, multimodal illumination and tracking system, the multi worm tracker, and colbert (husson et al., ). recently, a microfluidic device was also used to measure […]

[…] motility include measurements of the fluctuations in electrical currents by xcelligence [] or isothermal microcalorimetry []. in addition, image-based methods have been introduced, such as the parallel worm tracker [], the wormassay [], the wormscan [], the worminator [] or the whole-organism screening by preston et al [].adult cestodes have so far been excluded from in vitro screening, […]

[…] in each condition. using these video recordings, the movement traces of worms during all recording periods were calculated by following the organism centroids using a modified version of the parallel worm tracker for matlab []. the average worm speed during the recording periods was then calculated for each plate and each condition., microfluidic devices were prepared by soft lithography […]
