Transgenerational inheritance of epigenetic states allows organisms to pass on adaptive responses to the environment to their offspring. Seong et al. (2011) now reveal how stress-induced signaling through dATF-2 disrupts heterochromatin and leaves heritable marks that influence patterns of gene expression in subsequent generations.
