The nematode Caenorhabditis elegans has risen as a critical creature show in different fields including neurobiology, formative science, and hereditary qualities. Qualities of this creature demonstrate that have added to its prosperity incorporate its hereditary manipulability, invariant and completely depicted formative program, all around portrayed genome, simplicity of support, short and productive life cycle, and little body estimate. These same elements have prompted to an expanding utilization of C. elegans in toxicology, both for robotic reviews and highthroughput screening approaches. We depict a portion of the exploration that has been completed in the territories of neurotoxicology, hereditary toxicology, and ecological toxicology, and additionally high-throughput tries different things with C. elegans including all inclusive screening for sub-atomic focuses of harmfulness and fast danger evaluation for new chemicals. We contend for an expanded part for C. elegans in supplementing other model frameworks in toxicological research.
