Reiterating mutants of the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans


, : Reiterating mutants of the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans. Rivista di Biologia Biology Forum 85(3/4): 461-464

The phenomenon of grandparental reiteration in C. elegans is briefly discussed. This involves a cell lineage in which the identities of the cells are encoded in binary combination. The code combination 00 is carried over in one of the daughter cells at each division so that 00 must be interpreted as 3 different things.
