Study uncovers genetic switches that control process of whole-body regeneration

Researchers are shedding new light on how animals perform whole-body regeneration, and uncovered a number of DNA switches that appear to control genes used in the process. When it comes to regeneration, some animals are capable of amazing feats — if you cut the leg off a salamander, it will grow back. When threatened, some … More Study uncovers genetic switches that control process of whole-body regeneration
