Animals' ability to regenerate body parts

Séminaire organisé par Michalis Averof


Many animals have the ability to regenerate parts of their body that have been lost through injury or disease. This ability has attracted attention for centuries, but the underlying mechanisms of regeneration are just beginning to be addressed using modern genetic approaches. I will discuss our efforts to establish a small crustacean as a new model for studying limb regeneration, and will outline how we can use genetic tools to investigate this process.
