Jurassic Park? Woolly mammoth discovery raises possibility of cloning
Scientists have discovered well-preserved frozen woolly mammoth fragments deep in Siberia that may contain living cells, edging a tad closer to the “Jurassic Park” possibility of cloning a prehistoric animal, the mission’s organizer said Tuesday.
Russia’s North-Eastern Federal University said an international team of researchers had discovered mammoth hair, soft tissues and bone marrow some 100 meters underground during a summer expedition in the northeastern province of Yakutia. (AFP/GettyImages)
