gmp (155289) writes "The New York Times and the Wall Street Journal are reporting on a new paper, published in the science journal Cell Stem Cell, where scientists, inspired by the ability of newts and other lower organisms to regrow lost limbs, have demonstrated that adult mamalian cells can be made to regenerate by suppressing a pair of anti-cancer genes. Is regeneration nature's default, only turned off by our evolved defenses against cancer? Also props to the scientists for use of the word "catapulting" in the discussion section."
