A group of scientists have almost completed the full genome sequence of two woolly mammoth’s from Siberia. What does this mean? A full DNA profile of the mammoth creates the potential to bring it back. Now, taking the lessons learned from the classic film Jurassic Park, it is not clear that not much good can come from reviving ancient beasts. They became extinct for a reason (probably for mankind’s benefit). But the idea of de-extinction is pretty sweet, that is until the mammoths turn on us like the dinosaurs in the movie.
