The European Commission 6th Framework Programme  provides funding to the IMBB-led NemaGENETAG project. Main objectives are the development and evaluation of efficient transposon-based tools for mutagenesis and transgenesis in the nematode C. elegans. These tools will ultimately be exploited to generate comprehensive transposon-insertion mutant libraries.
