  • Do you recall the science-fiction of Michael Crichton's best-selling book, Jurassic Park, where dinosaurs were recreated?
  • A similar experiment may soon become science fact as researchers get closer to resurrecting one of Earth's most famous prehistoric beasts - the Ice age colossus - the Woolly Mammoth.

Serial tech entrepreneur Ben Lamm is funding a project by Harvard geneticist George Church to revive the woolly mammoth. They have named the project "Colossal" and hope to create a calf in as little as six years, Church told CNBC. ,spinexch

Rewilding the Arctic with lab-grown woolly mammoths could slow global warming by slowing the melting of the permafrost, where methane is currently trapped, says the scientist. ,soccer fans

A little more than two years ago, Ben Lamm reached out to renowned Harvard geneticist George Church at the latter’s lab. The company they envisioned and declared the existence of on Monday is a bio-science and genetics start-up named "Colossal". The start-up’s goal is ambitious and a little bit crazy: It aims to create a new type of animal similar to the extinct woolly mammoth by genetically engineering endangered Asian elephants to withstand Arctic temperatures, reports CNBC,soccer fans .

free slot credit malaysia,According to New Scientist, Church has no intention of using a live elephant as a surrogate for the hybrid embryo and instead hopes to use an artificial womb to grow the hybrid in a laboratory, a process that could take years if the technology existed.

Ancients Mammoths had hybrid species too:
In February 2021, New Scientist had reported that for the first time, preserved DNA has been recovered from animal remains over a million years old. The DNA belonged to two mammoths that lived around 1.2 million years ago. The genetic sequences change our understanding of mammoth evolution and revealed that, at that time, Siberia was home to two distinct groups of these animals. The mammoths of North America were the product of a hybridisation event between these two groups, and obtained half of their DNA from each.

A variety of investors and Lamm as CEO have come together to pump in an initial sum of million in seed funding for this start-up. The company intends to bring several extinct species back to life to restore lost ecosystems and slow climate change reports the Times,cricket food .

We’ve never done a press release on it in all those years. It just comes up naturally in conversation.”

Church, the Robert Winthrop Professor of Genetics at Harvard Medical School and a faculty member at the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard University, is a noted geneticist who is credited for having started the Personal Genome Project, started more than 20 companies, and has more than 100 patents to his name.,web roulette online

Until now, Church’s vision to revive the woolly mammoth was “mainly dreaming and talking,” Church told CNBC. “Ben came out of the blue, I think inspired at a distance from what he was reading about this very charismatic project, which was very underfunded.”,free slots you can win real money

“There are two main things that are endangering it. One is a herpes virus. And the other is close proximity to humans. So we’d like to fix both of those and give them a new home, where there are vast amounts of space with almost no humans, which is northern Canada, Alaska and Siberia.”,casino royale 2006 subtitles

So Colossal aims to create an Asian elephant genetically modified with herpes virus resistance and the ability to withstand the ice-cold temperatures.,49 results

It sounds like science fiction, but Church said he is confident that he will be able to genetically modify the Asian elephant because he has done similar genetic manipulation with pigs, where he made 42 genetic edits to their cells.,addaonline

The genetically modified elephant would be implanted into an engineered endometrium at first, and then would grow in a bag, which would look similar to the artificial womb that Philadelphia scientists used to grow a genetically engineered lamb in 2017, Church said.,betway sports betting

If these revived woolly mammoths eventually repopulate the Arctic, they would take down small trees and help repopulate the grasses they thrive on, Church said. Those grasses reflect sunlight better than the dark trunks of the conifer trees that live there. In addition, the woolly mammoths tamp down the snow, making it less insulating.,tpsl means

“If that methane gets released, it’s 30 times worse than carbon dioxide per molecule” in terms of its ability to cause global warming, Church said.,friendlies football scores
