The attempt to clone the woolly mammoth may seem to all of us a science fiction movie, however sometimes things are stranger in reality than they are in a movie. Scientists from Russia and South Korea agreed to attempt to recreate this creature that roamed the earth some 10,000 years ago.
The plan is to implant eggs from restored mammoth cells into the womb of a live elephant.
The project will be conducted under the auspices of North-Eastern Federal University of the Sakha Republic and Woo-Suk Hwang of South Korea’s Sooam Biotech Research Foundation.
The research will begin with the remains of a woolly mammoth that were recovered after global warming thawed Siberia’s permafrost.Scientists to Try Cloning the Woolly Mammoth
