Regeneration is a complex and dynamic process, mobilizing diverse cell types and remodelling tissues over long time periods. A team of researchers from the Institut de Génomique Fonctionnelle de Lyon (IGFL), led by Michalis Averof, just published in e-Life the results of their last research.
Tracking cell fate and behaviour during regeneration in active adult animals is especially challenging. Here, we establish continuous live imaging of leg regeneration at single-cell resolution in the crustacean Theses researches were performed by Frederike Alwes, Camille Enjolras et Michalis Averof, PI for "Comparative developmental biology and regeneration".
