Systematic mapping of genetic-interaction networks will provide an essential foundation for understanding complex genetic disorders, mechanisms of genetic buffering and principles of robustness and evolvability. A recent study of signaling pathways in Caenorhabditis elegans lays the next row of bricks in this foundation.
