Scientists Close to Cloning Mammoth
Scientists from Russia and Japan believe it may be possible to recreate a woolly mammoth within five years. The teams expect to replace the nuclei of egg cells from an elephant with marrow cells from a mammoth thigh bone recently discovered in the permafrost soil of Siberia. The resulting embryos will be implanted in elephant wombs for gestation. More at Mail Online.
