Yin, Ph.D., of the MDI Biological Laboratory and Benjamin L. King, Ph.D., of the University of Maine discovered genetic material in the cell that likely plays a part in regulating genetic circuits responsible for regeneration in highly regenerative animals by studying the early stages of heart regeneration in the zebrafish.
