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
