Support us

Donate to OpenWorm to support our volunteer work and accelerate development of the first artificial organism.

How can I contribute?

It matters.

How will the money be spent?


Sponsor an OpenWorm Studentship. This would allow a talented C. elegans researcher to convert their published work for use in OpenWorm.


Organize an OpenWorm conference. This would give our distributed team the possibility to meet in person, boosting productivity and coordination.


Pay a PhD student or a junior developer to work full-time on our team for one year. This would help us to coordinate our activities and contribute to the development of our many projects.


Fund a research project in collaboration with a university to fill in gaps of biological data that are essential to reach our goal.
