In this chapter, we have described how neuroscience data for the nematode C. elegans are deposited to and accessed from database. Research on neuroscience of C. elegans has attracted tremendous attention primarily because of its simple nervous system with 302 neurons. Data generated by comprehensive reconstruction and other efforts were initially deposited to and retrieved from ACeDB. More recently, Wormbase was created, which allows users to access data remotely and easily.
