Abstract

The nematode Strongyloides ratti has a remarkable life cycle, which has both a parasitic and a free-living phase. The free-living phase includes a choice between two developmental routes. Here, Mark Viney discusses recent advances in understanding the biology of this developmental switch and shows how the life cycle of this nematode can be used to explore the lifestyle transitions common to all parasitic nematodes, as well as to address other basic biological questions.
