Morphallaxis and Epimorphosis in Hydra attenuata

Remarkable is both the absence of senescence and the ability of morphallaxis inherent to this hydroid.  What a scientific marvel —even for the legendary BM facility — to have succeeded in transposing the RNA and DNA sequences, not only to a single human stem-cell, but, in fact, to be able to create a life-viable specimen. In spite of the fact that the current specimens are missing a cranium...

Alas, even after almost eleven years of research, we are still no step closer to creating more specimens. And I wonder what kind of technology BM had at it disposal that we do not.
I even looked back at the old shipping documents and original correspondence in order to find some more clues I might have looked over all those years.
