There are many examples in nature where inter-individual variability in life-history traits is exploited as an adaptive strategy.

We have shown that inter-individual variability in stress response genes has consequences for the robustness to both genetic and environmental perturbations in Caenorhabditis elegans.

Remarkably, the genetic homogeneity of this nematode points at important underlying non-genetic components. We are currently studying the causes and consequences of stochastic epigenetic variability.
