COLLEGE BIOLOGY STUDENTS LEARN BIG LESSONS FROM TINY CREATURES

Posted March 21 at 1:15pm

They are barely visible and not anyone’s idea of a favorite animal. But planarian were an instant sensation in Kimberly Jordan’s college biology 102 when students learned about these “adorable cross-eyed creatures,” as one student called them, and their unthinkable, natural capabilities.

 

No longer than a half-inch, hiding in bodies of water, or in moist ground habitats, planarian are flatworms that can resist highly pathogenic bacteria and regenerate themselves. Their potential to revolutionize modern medicine makes them a favorite research subject in regeneration and developmental biology.

 

"It was amazing to be able to interact with the planaria and watch them grow over time. Working with these animals first hand allows students to gain a better understanding and appreciation of the amazing capabilities that other organisms have. I've learned so much, not only about regeneration, but about life as a whole," Victoria Burger said.
