What is your Research question behind the study of Earthworms?

Is there any specific protocol which you follow?

Also, provide your design of the experiment!

Also share with us the literature regarding your Model System which would help us to build a good Context for the new CUBISTS as well as everyone.

So firstly i was doing a project on role of clitellum in regeneration but then i collaborated with some students from Vivekanand college and they showed me a research paper on regeneration studies in the gut of the earthworm
So my hypothesis was that the clitellum along with the post clitellar segments was necessary for regeneration whereas the research paper they showed me stated that the intestinal part of the gut is responsible for the regeneration that is present in the clitellum and post clitellar segemnts thats why my objective has changed
