African spiny mice (very cute, sometimes kept as pets) can shed their skin, or at least patches of it, to get away from predators, and then grow it back pretty much as good as new. This could help researchers understand wound healing and regeneration.

Some of the Olympic venue sites have been cleaned up using bioremediation as part of one of the world’s largest brownfield regeneration projects. Brownfield sites are previous industrial sites and include the Aquatic Centre, where the ground was contaminated with lubricating oil. The process used indigenous microbes to aerobically biodegrade the oil, supported with REGENESIS’ Advanced Oxygen Release Compound, which released oxygen over 12 months.
