And in 2028, we may see a living woolly mammoth thanks to genetic engineering  Sciences

The ancestors of elephants, woolly mammoths, existed on Earth for millions of years, but became extinct 4,000 years ago, but thanks to genetic technology and stem cells, we will soon be able to meet a living specimen thanks to the company Colossal Biosciences, who also want to bring back extinct wading birds.




Colossal Biosciences announced it has found a way to reprogram elephant cells, a technical breakthrough that could lead to the return of the long-lost mammal. Naturally It's not a real woolly mammoth, but a freed Asian elephantIt has long fur and a thicker layer of fat so it can withstand cold weather.

Phenomenal scientists have succeeded in reprogramming the cells of the Asian elephant into an embryonic state that can give rise to all other cell types. This paves the way for the creation of elephant sperm and eggs in the laboratory and allows genetic modification testing without the frequent need to take tissue samples from live elephants. Despite the excitement, the road to bringing back the mammoth remains difficult. The company plans to create the first mammoth, which will be born from a mother elephant, by 2028.
