MedicalXpress publishes UMaine release on regenerative tissue database

MedicalXpress carried a University of Maine news release about a new database for regenerative tissue capabilities in animals, created by researchers at UMaine and the MDI Biological Laboratory in Bar Harbor. The Comparative Models of Regeneration Database, or RegenDbase, can be used by researchers to compare gene expression patterns between animals with different regeneration capacities. The database was created by a research team led by Benjamin King, an assistant professor of bioinformatics at UMaine, and Viravuth Yin from the MDI lab, the release states.
