The findings were published in academic journal GigaScience today. “Despite its iconic status, there ... Read More »

New genetic regulators of regeneration identified

Scientists at the MDI Biological Laboratory and the University of Maine have discovered that genetic material in the cell that was previously thought to be “junk” because of its apparent lack of function likely plays a part in regulating genetic circuits responsible for regeneration in highly regenerative animals. Viravuth P. ... Read More »
