Potentially Cloneable Wooly Mammoth Found In Siberia


Scientists are investigating a well preserved woolly mammoth carcass discovered in Siberia with the hopes of finding living cells inside and cloning one of the beasts. It’s a far cry from a dinosaur, but I’d still ride one into battle against the giants.

“Russia’s North-Eastern Federal University said an international team of researchers had discovered mammoth hair, soft tissues and bone marrow some 328 feet (100 meters) underground during a summer expedition in the northeastern province of Yakutia.
Expedition chief Semyon Grigoryev said Korean scientists with the team had set a goal of finding living cells in the hope of cloning a mammoth. Scientists have previously found bones and fragments but not living cells.”

KEEP THE DREAM ALIVE.
