  • The scope of this review is to introduce the free-living flatworm Macrostomum lignano as an excellent model organism to address questions of platyhelminth stem cell biology. First, we sketch the historical origin of flatworm stem cell research. Second, we introduce M. lignano, and summarize the main advantages that we think it has over the classical planarian model. Third, we give a short summary of the simple culture techniques. Fourth, we give a detailed overview over its morphology and… CONTINUE READING
