Early development reveals axolotl mysteries

(Morgridge Institute for Research) Researchers from the Morgridge Institute for Research looked at 17 different development stages of the axolotl -- a remarkable model organism capable of complete limb regeneration -- and found a highly unusual series of bursts in changes in gene expression, followed by stable periods, that is unique in developmental biology.
