Scientists from ETH Zurich in Switzerland and Jena University Hospital in Germany analyzed 40,000 genes in three different organism - roundworms, zebrafish and mice.

But first, scientists have to figure out how to make exoskeletons flexible.
Depending on your point of view, self-assembling robots sound cool -- or like something from a high-tech dystopian future
