New hair follicles can corral skin cancer

The same genetic mutations that can trigger cancer in some tissues are relatively harmless in others. A new Yale study has identified an unlikely source of protection against some forms of skin cancer—hair follicle regeneration.

Scientists unlock new role for nervous system in regeneration

Biologists at Tufts University have developed a computational model of planarian (flatworm) regeneration that explains how fragments of planaria determine which end should form a tail and which should form a head. The development ...

The regeneration of a cell depends on where it is positioned

A simple tissue sample from a plant, like a branch or leaf, can grow into a whole new plant. This ability could have applications in the production of food, biomass and medicine, and the genes responsible for regeneration ...
