|Report any problems that might have appeared and any solutions:
|| The expected results using this gene were that the worms should exhibit a "tubby" or larger than normal body size. The experiment was successful, in that when a feeding strain was constructed and used, the phenotype observed was that the worms were significantly larger all around when compared to the wild type worms.
