Talk Abstract

How animals regenerate missing body parts is one of the great mysteries of biology. Planarians are flatworms capable of some of the most dramatic known feats of animal regeneration, including regeneration of new heads. We have uncovered a key set of minimal components and concepts needed to explain how these animals accomplish their regenerative feats.
