Limb Development, Evolution, and Regeneration & Repair: Part One

Karen Sears, Jerome Gros, Megan Davey

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationEditorial


Decades of foundational studies have utilized the many benefits of the limb system to shape our understanding of cell, developmental, molecular, regenerative, and evolutionary biology. These benefits include the ease by which the limb can be experimentally manipulated and its variation functionally and developmentally characterized, relative to other organ systems. Fore- and hind limbs are also serially homologous structures that display a high level of functionally important morphological diversity among and within species. In this special issue, researchers build on the rich history of limb studies to investigate subjects including the patterning, evolution, and genetic regulation of the development and regeneration of the limb.
