[Merged] Ice Age giants bare their genetic secrets

7 posts in this topic

Scientists have managed to reconstruct the genome of giant animals which roamed the world more than 780,000 years ago, using a new technique which could boost our understanding of ancient man.

Through DNA analysis researchers were able to create the genome - which contains a mammal's hereditary information - of a huge cave bear and a large horse that had been dead for hundreds of thousands of years.

Thanks for sharing the link, you might be interested in this too, I was surprised I'd never heard of an Irish Elk before. The 1st time I saw a skeleton of one in a museum was a shock, it looked pretty intimidating. The thing must have been awesome to see alive.

Give genetics and cloning another few decades and you might see the real thing roaming the arctic.

Does this mean they could bring them back? Because that would be so. RAD.

The novel Jurassic Park was all about the parks popularity driving advertising for the real money spinner of getting pet dinosaurs to market, infertile and only able to eat special 'Dino food.' If there's a dollar in it they will get it done. Imagine the warning sign on the gate. "Beware the Cave Bear!"
