Developmental and Molecular Biology of Regeneration, Spring 2008

How does a regenerating animal "know" what's missing? How are stem cells or differentiated cells used to create new tissues during regeneration? In this class we will take a comparative approach to explore this fascinating problem by critically examining classic and modern scientific literature about the developmental and molecular biology of regeneration. We will learn about conserved developmental pathways that are necessary for regeneration, and we will discuss the relevance of these findings for regenerative medicine. This course is one of many Advanced Undergraduate Seminars offered by the Biology Department at MIT. These seminars are tailored for students with an interest in using primary research literature to discuss and learn about current biological research in a highly interactive setting. Many instructors of the Advanced Undergraduate Seminars are postdoctoral scientists with a strong interest in teaching. (less)

Ring species provide a unique glimpse into how some species came to be. A ring of populations encircles an area of unsuitable habitat. At one location in the ring, two distinct forms coexist without interbreeding. Around the rest of the ring, the traits of one species change gradually through intermediate populations into the second speciesí˘ŒóŒť traits. (less)

An online encyclopedia article about an Italian embryologist in the 18th Century interested in regeneration, spontaneous generation (not!) and epigenesis/preformationism. A rigorous experimentalist, he inspired many other scientists. (less)
