Cover legend

Aztec legend says that the god Xólotl escaped from his death by transforming himself into a little water monster with the uncanny ability to regenerate any part of its body. This iconic animal, Ambystoma mexicanum (“Ajolote” in Spanish), has not escaped a fatal fate -as it is critically endangered nowadays in the wild-, keeping its secrets of eternal youth written in its large genome. For further details, see the article by Cynthia Sámano et al. in this issue, pp. 465-474. The beautiful photo was taken by Tim Flach https://timflach.com .
