This infographic shows what scientists hope to do within 4 years, or so claims The Telegraph. Using some new techniques scientists have been able to clone a mouse whose DNA has been frozen for 16 years. That’s not bad, now they want to make the jump to 5,000 year old wooly mammoth DNA.
Personally, I think that’s quite a jump to make, but hey, what’s science if not leaps of innovation and faith? That being said, even before they start trying to clone a wooly mammoth, I hope someone somewhere is trying to clone dinosaurs. I also hope that that person either has the name John, or looks like Richard Attenborough.
