Who said science fiction would never become reality? With the current advancement in genetic technology it seems we are finally going to have a real breakthrough – a Jurassic Park moment, to be precise.
That’s right! A genetics professor from Harvard University – George Church – hopes to bring back the Woolly Mammoth after they went extinct thousands of years ago.
Church co-founded the company Colossal, whose ultimate goal is “to use CRISPR technology successfully in the de-extinction of previously lost species.”
As of the time of this writing, the team has successfully raised over fifteen million U.S dollars in funding for the mindblowing project.
