Identifying the key molecular players in planarian regeneration may offer clues into how the process may work in other species, including humans. HHMI investigator Alejandro Sánchez Alvarado and postdoctoral fellow Alice Accorsi use RNA-mediated genetic interference (RNAi) to silence different genes in planaria and determine how they affect regeneration.
