It's All in the DNA
Harvard scientists have made a remarkable discovery.  They wanted to learn why some animals such as geicos, salamanders and worms are capable of what's called whole body regeneration - for instance regenerating severed limbs or tails.  They just reported the discovery of a number of DNA switches that appear to control genes used in whole body regeneration.  For a great news blog on this, go to
