<i>C. elegans</i> interprets bacterial non-coding RNAs to learn pathogenic avoidance

Nature, Published online: 09 September 2020; doi:10.1038/s41586-020-2699-5

Exposing Caenorhabditis elegans to non-coding small RNAs from pathogenic Pseudomonas aeruginosa induces avoidance behaviours in treated worms and their progeny, which reveals how C. elegans discriminates between bacterial species in its microbial environment.
