Harvard scientists may soon start cloning woolly mammoths

Harvard scientists may soon start cloning woolly mammoths, after managing to insert DNA from the extinct animal into the genetic code of a modern elephant

Scientists at Harvard University were able to insert DNA from a woolly mammoth into the genetic code of an elephant.

The Harvard scientists studied genes from mammoths that were found preserved in Arctic permafrost. They were then able to replicate the genes and splice them into the genetic code of an elephant. The experiment was successful, as the genetic splice turned out well.
This is a major step towards bringing back a species that has been extinct for thousands of years.

“We now have functioning elephant cells with mammoth DNA in them. We have not published in a scientific journal because there is more work to do, but we plan to do so,” said George Church, professor of genetics at Harvard University, as cited by the Telegraph.

Woolly mammoths, which died out during the last Ice Age, were close relatives of Asian elephants. According to scientists, the last species survived on Russia’s Wrangel Island in the Arctic Ocean up until 3,300 years ago. Now, as the Harvard scientists know how to clone the ancient mammal, some believe that it would be unethical to bring back the mammoth.

About Ian Bach

Independent Online Terrorist Hunter I teach people how to hunt down and shut down the Bad guys web sites. I also teach about the various countries and cultures. Like most cases it is a small group of bsd eggs that in this case call themselves Muslims but in actual fact they are more like how KKK call themselves ",True Christisians". But in both cases / groups they preach a perverted and twisted view a religion. In the case of ISIS, all Qaeda, al Nusra, and the rest of the terrorists who claim to be true Muslims most of these groups follow the Wahhabi teachings. They are almost all Sunni and their goal is global domination. Yet they must be very bad at math and history. Since most Muslims prefer a separation of church and state and also mist are against Shari's Law. Esp the twisted and overly exaggerated form of Sharia Law that the Wahhabi and other bad guys use. I have studied terrorism, insurgencies, and the best tried and proven methods that work to fight terrorism. My Blogs have many links and articles that can show you who are the best and most knowledgeable people in the fields or counterinsurgency and counter terrorism. When I find great practitioner's I always listen to them to find out who they learned from and who they respect and admire. Thus I am always learning new stuff from the best and most successful in their fields of knoeledge. I strive to be an open and ethical source of information, I have met many awesome, kind, caring, and loving wonderful people many who I am close friends with now from Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Turkey, Iran, and many from S.E. Asia which also has a high percent of their populations that are Muslim.We must always strive to be aware people are not any one particular religion via that's what they chose to be, instead most people are a particular religion because that's what their parents and/or county is. I was raised Catholic but because I became Interested in magic ,(illusion - smoke n mirrors) and science which lead me to study many religions, and I would call myself an atheist. Yet sometimes when I lose my keys ZI find myself praying "Hail Marys" and a few "Our Fathers" which most always aides me in finding my keys. My belief is that if I just frantically look around for my krys, good luck it takes me for ever. But by saying these prayers it is like s sort of meditation and my mind becomes more calm, which is why it helps my find my keys.
