Comments P.346 left column 2nd paragraph: "Following embryogenesis, a C. elegans larva emerges from its eggshell at ∼250 μm in length. As larval development proceeds (from larval stage L1 to L4), the worm grows over 100-fold in volume before reaching adulthood. [Researchers] investigated how this growth is coordinated at the tissue, cell, and organelle levels."
