The algorithmic matrix of patterning information during planarian regeneration.

The correct regeneration of complex morphology after amputation in planaria requires precise coordination of global patterning information and individual stem cell activity. This image illustrates the algorithmic information that is processed by cells and tissues to restore missing structures. See Lobo and Beane(e1002281).
