Still Waters Posted September 13, 2021 #1 Share Posted September 13, 2021 (IP: Staff) · Ten thousand years after woolly mammoths vanished from the face of the Earth, scientists are embarking on an ambitious project to bring the beasts back to the Arctic tundra. The prospect of recreating mammoths and returning them to the wild has been discussed – seriously at times – for more than a decade, but on Monday researchers announced fresh funding they believe could make their dream a reality. The boost comes in the form of $15m (£11m) raised by the bioscience and genetics company Colossal, co-founded by Ben Lamm, a tech and software entrepreneur, and George Church, a professor of genetics at Harvard Medical School who has pioneered new approaches to gene editing. https://www.theguardian.com/science/2021/sep/13/firm-bring-back-woolly-mammoth-from-extinction https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20210913005498/en/ 4 1 1 Top Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
