We are trying to grow worms in 24-well NGM plates for large-scale 
screening.  We have had problems with the middle wells staying too 
wet,  while the outer wells are in good shape.  If we dry the plates 
in the  hood until the middle wells are dry enough, then the outer 
wells get  too dry and the agar cracks.  Any suggestions for worm 
culture in this  format would be most appreciated!!

Thanks,
Barth
