Newt Transcriptome Offers Insight into Tissue Regeneration

Caption: Scientists have identified protein families expressed during tissue regeneration in newts, providing the groundwork for research into whether particular sets of genes are used for the purpose. The transcriptome -- the map of all RNA molecules -- of the newt is published this week in BioMed Centralís open access journal Genome Biology.
