Key points from article :
Japanese sea cucumber's genome sequenced to investigate its ability to regenerate internal organs.
The genome consists of 805 megabases and reveals genes responsible for regenerative ability.
Sea cucumbers spew off their internal organs to scare off predators.
Internal organs grow back within few weeks.
Framework for future research on regenerative abilities that could have medical applications.
