[Celegans] C. elegans mutants

Dear Colleagues,
Yersinia pseudotuberculosis (and Yersinia pestis) form a biofilm on C.
elegans (Joshua et al (2003) Microbiol 149, 3221-9). Early in
"infection" and also on specific mutants of Y. pseudotuberculosis,
C.elegans moves in an aberrant fashion ie with markedly
increased flexion, leaving characteristic tracks in the bacterial lawn -
see attached and Ref.
My question is: are there any C. elegans mutants which move in a
similar manner?
