At the same time, the number of functionally characterized genes is only increasing linearly. How can we increase the speed of functional genomics to make full use of the data mining? Model organisms have helped significantly to understand the roles of particular genes in an organism. The classical approaches to address gene function first involves the inactivation of a given gene and the monitoring of the resulting conse- quences. For single factors, this method was success- fully used in the model organisms Drosophila melanogaster and mouse. However, in order to upscale this knock-out methodology and subsequent analysis, these models have a significant disadvantage: the time and effort to perform even single targeted gene manipu- lations is significant, and the complexity of the organism prevents in many cases the detailed analyses of the KO consequences. Here, the nematode C. elegans offers several advantages: 40-60 % of the human disease genes are represented by homologues in C. elegans. In addition, the animals are small enough to be kept in large numbers in a format that allows mass manipula- tions (microtiter plates) and knock-outs of candidate genes can be obtained in a matter of 4-6 weeks. Animal facilities are cheap, and C. elegans is the only multicel- lular organism for which the development of each single cell and the entire connectivity of its nervous system are known. At the same time, the cellular diversity of the C.
elegans nervous system is in the same range as that of a vertebrate brain, although the total number of neurons is only 302. Remarkably, C. elegans neurons use the same neurotransmitters as humans, and the receptor pharmacology is astonishingly similar.
In this seminar, examples of functional conservation of human genes and their C. elegans counterparts/homo- logues will be discussed. In particular, I will focus on genes involved in human neurodegenerative diseases and discuss the contribution C. elegans models can make to understand the function of the relevant human GENE TECHNOLOGY FORUM 2001 TARTU, ESTONIA

Homogeneity of Variances By Dr. Jon Starkweather, Research and Statistical Support consultant This month we touch on a fundamental issue in statistical evaluation that often gets overlooked. Testing assumptions for parametric analysis is a fundamental step and a necessary one. For example, let’s consider some of the simplest experimental design analysis available; the independent t- te
