Scientists ready to clone Mammoth

December 6, 2011

The remains of the mammoth, which were found near the village of Batagai in the north of Russia’s Yakutia Republic, will probably help scientists clone the prehistoric animal. The researchers discovered the well-preserved fragments of mammoth’s bone marrow.

The remains of the mammoth were found in Yakutia in August 2011. A group of Russian and Japanese scientists have recently discovered the genetic material, which will be required to clone the prehistoric animal. The scientists from Yakutia’s Mammoth Museum and Japan’s Kinki University have been studying the possibility of cloning mammoth for two years.
