C. elegans swim mutation

C. elegans swim mutation

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 verticle slide filled with fluid. The worms would have to adapt to swimming to be able to move around the slide.
