Directed reprogramming of differentiated cells allows the generation of specific cell types for therapeutics and can provide unexpected insights into development. A recent study demonstrates that efficient reprogramming of Caenorhabditis elegans germ cells into neurons can be achieved by knocking down a histone chaperone gene and ectopic expression of a terminal selector transcription factor.
