Congratulations to Antony Jose whose paper was published today in Nature Communications. Antony’s recent study provides a potential tool for unraveling the mystery of how an animal’s lived experience can be passed down through generations. While breeding nematode worms, Jose and his team found that some matings led to epigenetic changes in offspring that continued to be passed down through as many generations as the scientists continued to breed them. This discovery will enable scientists to
