Summary Serious and reputable scientists now believe that it is technically possibly to clone or "de-extinct" a whole range of animals, including the woolly mammoth - Jurassic Park style - within the next five to seven years. This involves major advances in the study of and the manipulation of ancient DNA, and in cloning.This program is "a beginner's guide to de-extinction"; it's about the science behind the mammoth de- extinction project - about the difficulties it faces, the enormous fragility of DNA, the challenges of discovering relatively undamaged mammoth DNA and about advances in cloning technology.
