Contents / Notes

Bibliography, etc.: Includes bibliographical references (pages 273-275) and index.
Summary, etc.: "From the frozen tundra of Siberia to the cutting-edge genetics labs of Harvard University, a group of young scientists--under the guidance of Dr. George Church, the most brilliant geneticist of our time--is working to make the impossible happen. Their task? To bring the Woolly Mammoth, a creature that has been extinct for three thousand years, back into our world. How will they do it? By sequencing the DNA of a frozen Woolly Mammoth harvested from above the Arctic Circle, and then splicing elements of it into the DNA of a modern elephant. Through this process, they hope to turn the hybrid cells into a functional embryo and bring the extinct creatures to life in our modern world. Pushing the boundaries of gene synthesis, stem cell research, and longevity science, their abilities are no longer confined to reading DNA, but now include writing DNA..."--Book jacket.
