C. elegans swim evolution

C. elegans swim evolution

In a separate experiment, Patrick McGrath's team at Georgia Tech is testing to see if C. elegans roundworms will mutate into the ability to swim by letting them live in a vertical slide filled with fluid. The worms would have to adapt to swimming to be able to move around the slide.
