An anonymous reader writes "Regeneration is one of the most useful skills that an organism can possess. Lizards can regrow their tails and starfish can regrow and entire part of themselves if they're cut to pieces.

That's why they decided to examine the process of regeneration, looking at the masters of this particular adaptation: flatworms."
