Regeneration is necessary to keep an organism. Without it, there could be no life. It is the process of restoration, renewal, and growth that makes genomes, cells, organisms, and ecological systems recover from natural change or events that cause a disturbance. However, not all organisms regenerate in the same way. For example, unlike mammals, lampreys exhibit strong spontaneous regeneration and functional recovery after spinal cord injury. It is not known why regeneration cannot occur in some organisms, but it can in others. Thus, there has been a lot of research to answer this fundamental question in regenerative biology.
We invite you to submit a paper in a broad range of topics around regeneration in animals. Areas of interest include but are not limited to:
Tissue and organ regeneration;
Nerve repair and regeneration.
