Sex and death insights from a mutant roundworm

All at once, a roundworm overhauls an array of survival strategies, and researchers suspect multiple mutations behind it. But they’re surprised when they trace the sweeping changes back to one tiny mutation on a single gene, and find a hint at a genetic regulator of so-called life history trade-offs….
