Genomics: Next regeneration sequencing for reference genomes.

Authors: Burgess, Darren J

Various species have remarkable abilities to regenerate body parts or entire organisms after injury, but a comprehensive understanding of the molecular basis of regeneration mech- anisms will require detailed genomic resources. Two new studies report high-quality reference genomes for two classic regeneration model organ- isms with contrasting genome sizes: the axolotl salamander Ambystoma mexicanum and the planarium flatworm Schmidtea mediterranea.
