Tiny worm is first animal to have entire genetic code mapped

WASHINGTON -- Scientists for the first time have mapped the entire gene pattern of an animal, a tiny worm that already is providing clues to human problems such as cancer, aging and Alzheimer's disease. Experts called the achievement an important advance in the ambitious effort to map the human gene structure and to someday use that knowledge to find the causes and cures of human disease. The worm, a type of nematode called Caenorhabditis elegans, is as common as dirt. A handful of garden soil contains thousands.
