Cells and organisms use chemotaxis to navigate through their environment. We used the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans and its chemotaxis response to NaCl to study three aspects of this behavior: regulation of protein localization in a primary cilium and its function, bistable genetic switch stability in neuronal cell fate maintenance, and gene expression variation underlying behavioral variability.
