CSUN recently launched a new app in the Apple App Store. Designed by CSUN students and staff, the free app was created for students in the myCSUNtablet courses. 

Nematode Classification

The Nematode Classification app was developed for upper-division biology majors to help students learn about the classification of nematodes living inside the beetle hosts. The app guides students through a dichotomous key identification process. It helps students to learn about nematode species and to contribute to finding new relationships and unknown species using a microscope. Associate Professor of Biology, Ray Hong, provided the nematode data and microscopic photography for the app.
