Woolly Mammoth Cloned

Russian and South Korea scientists have teamed up to recreate a woolly mammoth – a prehistoric creature that last walked the earth more than 10,000 years ago.

The deal was signed on Tuesday by Vasily Vasiliev, of North-Eastern Federal University of the Sakha Republic and stem cell scientist Hwang Woo-Suk of South Korea’s Sooam Biotech Research Foundation, AFP revealed.

The team aim to get to work on thawed remains of the extinct mammal recovered after global warming thawed Siberia’s permafrost.

The mammoth’s tissues are to be cloned by using eggs taken from a modern Indian elephant, the Korea Herald reported.

Once the tissues have undergone a nuclear transfer process, the eggs will be implanted into the womb of a live elephant.

Hwang lost face in the international scientific community in 2005 when his breakthrough human cloning research involving embryonic stem cells was found to have been faked.

He is also responsible for creating the world's first cloned dog, Snuppy, in 2005, an achievement which was independently confirmed.

Last year Hwang and his team unveiled eight cloned coyotes in October last year.

Sooam specialises in dog cloning, and claims “cloning technology is possible at Sooam for any dog no matter its age, size, and breed. Sooam not only performs dog cloning research, but also heal the broken hearts.”

Makes me think of the movie The 6th Day where they clone pets to avoid having to explain to kids about death. It's all about cloning and not too bad for a sci-fi action movie.. www.imdb.com/title/tt0216216/

Right out of Jurassic Park. Does this mean no more extinction?

Kind of creepy if you ask me. But interesting as hell. And I'm pretty sure Wooly Mammoth's lived in the same error as the dinosaurs, I'm just not sure if they were dinosaurs.

Fukin crazy to think they can re-create a new Jerry? Maybe Ted Williams was right? I thought he was a nut case for having his head cryogenically frozen.

I read an article (Time) about a guy who is taking Dino DNA & integrating it with chicken DNA. In a little while, we'll be hearing about scaly chickens running amuck.

Seems like it wont be long. But the question is, to what purpose? Is this for science, or entertainment?

I can't believe it's scientific. I suspect it's profit driven.

I have to agree. It doesn't seem like a worthy scientific pursuit, other than for profit.

It is both which is far worse....perversions of the natural order without knowledge of consequences is a slippery slope and screwing with the millions of years of evolution contained in dna is frightening. If people can does it mean they should?

YES !!! people should do it.

Best way to learn is by trial and error + experience - sure humans are always going to make mistakes and mess the world up, but that is part of the learning process we have to go thru in order to evolve to a higher order.

How do you know that human interaction with what you call the "natural order" is not part of the evolution process ?

What is a "perversion of the natural order" ? who's to judge that within a million year spectrum ?

Humans are animals and part of the natural order of this planet - we are not separate from nature or natural order.

I see no difference between "man- made" and nature.

everything can be reduced to chemicals, atoms, and energies, so who is to say that in the long run there is a difference ?

Don't be afraid ! Screwing with millions of years of evolution contained in DNA may be no different than how the DNA got there in the first place, maybe that is how DNA got there in the first place, by screwing with the evolutionary process.
There are some things we will never know and that's okay. i prefer mysteries over answers anyways.
