With a genetic project done by Harvard University, the hairy mammoths that have been exhausted for about 4,000 years are being returned to life. In this context, DNA samples of a hairy mammal living 42 years ago and the DNA of the filler are matched. According to scientists' explanation, this "Ice Age" clone will contribute to preventing global warming by improving Arctic climates, since living organisms will encourage plant growth.
It was announced that the "hairy mammoths", which have been exhausted about 4,000 years ago, can be relaunched in the world by a cloning project In Harvard University.
Scientists involved in the study indicated that they used DNA samples of a protected hairy mammal for the project for a period longer than 42,000 years in the Siberian glaciers.
According to this, in the artificial uterus created in a female elephant, fertilized ovine hairy mammoth DNA will be copied and a kind of Asian elephant and mammoth bloom will appear.
If experiments based on scientific explanations are successful, this will play an important role in the reorganization of the polar climate, which has been destroyed in terms of global warming and human activities, leading to the growth of vegetation in arctic regions where hairy mammoths can live.
Principal investigator George Church stated that they will publish an article on the subject in the coming days. The scientist said that they used a cloning technique called CRISPR-Cas9, which allows DNA strands to process each other with a precision that does not exist in earlier methods:
"We have succeeded in animating the mammoth genetics that we have tested on the elephant cells so far. Since we have living species that can live in harsh polar climates, we are returning the climate in these regions for reorganization. Extreme cold-resistant feathered mammoths will insulate the falling snow in this region, so the trees will grow again in the winter months. "
"In the summer months, they will prefer plantations with higher temperatures, and on the other hand, the growing plant population will regulate carbon emissions by increasing the photosynthetic capacity in the region."
Churck noted that future grasslands will reflect more sunlight than the forests that exist today, as the winter cold allows the soil to sink into the ground by allowing more penetration into the earth's crust.
It is thought that the last individual of the feathered (or hairy) mammoth (Mammuthus primigenius) has been left about 3600 years ago.
