Mammoth to be brought back to life
MAMMOTH TO BE BROUGHT BACK TO LIFE
Scientists from Japan and Russia believe it may be possible to clone a mammoth after finding well-preserved bone marrow in a thigh bone recovered from permafrost soil in Siberia.
By replacing the nuclei of egg cells from an elephant with those taken from the mammoth’s marrow cells, embryos with mammoth DNA can be produced.
The giant mammals became extinct in Siberia around 10,000 years ago during a period of global warming that ended the last ice age.
