Vogt G. 2016. Research on stem cells, aging, cancer resistance, and epigenetics in marbled crayfish and relatives: potential benefits for human biology and medicine. In: T Kawai, Z Faulkes, G Scholtz, eds. Freshwater Crayfish: A Global Overview, pp. 115-157.

Freshwater crayfish and their relatives have not yet been taken into the focus of stem cell biology, biogerontology, cancer biology and epigenetics although research of the last decade suggests a promising potential. In this chapter, the state of the art in these emerging fields of astacology, emphasizing contributions made by the parthenogenetic marbled crayfish as an emerging model organism have been reviewed.
