  1. Aleman Meza B, Jung S, Zhong W. An automated system for quantitative analysis of Drosophila larval locomotion. BMC Dev Biol. 2015;15:11 pubmed publisher
    ..These results showed that MaggotTracker is an efficient tool for automatic phenotyping. The MaggotTracker software as well as the data presented here can be downloaded from our open-access site www.WormLoco.org/Mag. ..
  2. Zhou Y, Loeza Cabrera M, Liu Z, Aleman Meza B, Nguyen J, Jung S, et al. Potential Nematode Alarm Pheromone Induces Acute Avoidance in Caenorhabditis elegans. Genetics. 2017;206:1469-1478 pubmed publisher
    ..Together, these data support a model that nematodes use a nematode-specific alarm pheromone to detect conspecific injury. ..
