breeding animals and growing them takes an extremely high amount of resources.. and then when you compare them to something like a potato.. in fact you need 130 times more resource to produce 1 kg of meat than you would need to grow 1kg of potato... 130:1 ratio :/ (1kg of potatoes requires only 100 litres of water, whereas 1 kg of beef requires 13 000 litres.)

Anyways, i don't see the point of this experiment... It obviously is cool, but i see no scientific value on it.

Amazing how nobody sees this as a potentially bad idea...silly science, ignoring movies.

I thought it was a good idea.

Woe... there's scientific value in it. The question is, what good will it do?

Ya. You could pour 50 million dollars of rogaine on an elephant and it wouldn't grow hair. But this. This is going to work.

Fun fact: artificially performing transformation of eukaryotic DNA to something that lasts for generations is super difficult, usually results in cell death/immune reactions in multi-cellular eukaryotes, performed on a very small scale (transfected cells generally don't undergo mitosis). We are decades away from being able to put a fragment of DNA into a human cell (other than liver and blood cells- they're end stage differentiated cells already and are destined to die anyways) and have it DO something EDIT other than tag that cell for targeted immune response.

As for this wooly mammoth coming back, it remains to be seen if the artificially created embryo is even able to survive in the elephants womb- it probably will, but will take many tries and may result in a less than healthy clone. The micronutrient environment of the womb (ie the concentrations of specific ions in the amniotic fluid) is likely to vary enough between an elephant and a wooly mammoth that this is a tall hill to climb.

From Wikipedia regarding Dolly the Sheep: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cloning

"Cloning Dolly the sheep had a low success rate per fertilized egg; she was born after 237 eggs were used to create 29 embryos, which only produced three lambs at birth, only one of which lived. Seventy calves have been created and one third of them died young; Prometea took 277 attempts. Notably, although the first clones were frogs, no adult cloned frog has yet been produced from a somatic adult nucleus donor cell."

1/237 using the exact same species.

Also, dinosaurs being spontaneously created with no egg will not happen. Jurassic Park, while awesome, has no basis in science. T-Rexes were likely scavengers, not roaring monsters of death and maiming.

If these scientists want to see a mammoth they should just put a wig on an elephant.
