Has anyone 'broken' an organism, rendering it unable to reproduce, then repaired it and observed it returned to being able to reproduce?
An example would be to restore the reproductive capacity to a cell rendered lifeless from radiation.
I've attempted, several times over many years, to find any information about this and all I've found is abiogenesis and the Miller-Urey experiment which is not the question at hand.
If there is another technical term referring to repair of life, versus creation, then I am unaware of it.
ADDENDUM: Clarified question ...limited to reproduction vs. living.
