This funding will allow the Andersen lab in collaboration with Dr. Charlie Baer’s lab to investigate how randomly accumulated mutations contribute to the fitness of the C. elegans experimental system. We will also investigate the spectrum of variation found in natural strains to gauge fitness effects in the wild.
