JAPANESE RESEARCH TEAM ‘WAKES UP’ MAMMOTH CELL NUCLEI

New findings indicate that the resurrection of mammoths is not a fantasy, a research team including members from Kindai University is saying, after cell nuclei extracted from the 28,000-year-old remains of a woolly mammoth were discovered to retain some function.

When placed in the ova of mice, the nuclei developed to a state just before cellular division, according to a paper published Monday in the British journal Scientific Reports.

The team includes researchers from Japanese and Russian universities. It has been working for about 20 years on a project to use cloning to resurrect mammoths, an animal that has long been extinct.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This technology... is both brilliant and terrifying; it is terrifying, because one has to wonder what an organization like DARPA will do with it, when it gets its hands on it.
