Slowing metabolic rate can prevent detrimental effects of genetic mutations: Finding appears to be universal across hundreds of tested mutations

In a new study, researchers slowed mutant fruit flies' metabolic rates by 50%, and the expected detrimental effects of many mutations never manifested. After experimentally testing fruit flies' many different genetic mutations, the researchers found the same result each time.
