Abstract

Laser cell kill is an established tool for studying cells' roles during development and behavior, but its use has been limited due to the manual and low-throughput nature. We demonstrate here a technique combining multiplexing microfluidic manipulation of Caenorhabditis elegans and software for image processing and automation, allowing for high-throughput cell ablations.
