7.342 Developmental and Molecular Biology of Regeneration (MIT)
How does a regenerating animal "know" what's missing? How are stem cells or differentiated cells used to create new tissues during regeneration? In this class we will take a comparative approach to explore this fascinating problem by critically examining classic and modern scientific literature about the developmental and molecular biology of regeneration. We will learn about conserved developmental pathways that are necessary for regeneration, and we will discuss the relevance of thes

Evolution of Media for Early Design Stages
In this paper the evolution of media used at early design stages will be considered.

Implementation of new digital techniques in 60s - 70s focused on the mathematical way ofrepresentation. These methods were ?not architect friendly? (lack of graphic representation traditionally used by architects). As a result, the development of methods for digital support of form searching wa
