Freshwater planarians possess remarkable regenerative abilities that make them one of the classic model organisms for the study of regeneration. These free‐living members of the phylum Platyhelminthes are representatives of the simplest triploblastic organisms possessing bilateral symmetry and cephalization. Furthermore, planarians occupy an important position in the evolution of Metazoa, which allows for the possibility of vertically integrating molecular studies of regeneration in this… Expand
