Woolly Mammoth Could Potentially Be Resurrected In 4 Years
With recent breakthroughs in cloning technology, scientist, Dr. Teruhiko Wakayama, Akira Iritani a professor at Kyoto University is trying to restart his campaign to clone a mammoth. The plan is to extract nuclei from a Woolly mammoth's frozen muscle tissue, and plant it in egg cells of a African elephant. By doing this the African elephant will become the surrogate mother of the Woolly mammoth. Woolly mammoths died out about 12,000 years ago, but this scientific advancement can bring us closer to this extinct beast.
