Russian and South Korean Scientists to Decipher Genome of Fossil Animals
January 28, 2017 19:44

DNA molecules of the cell nuclei have been extracted from the bones of a mammoth, a bison, a horse, a rhino, an elk, a deer and a wolf. The first results will be reported about in the summer of 2017.
Genome of ancient animals will be deciphered by Russian and South Korean scientists for the first time in Russia. This was reported by the lead researcher of the International Molecular Palaeontology Center of the North Eastern Federal University, Lena Grigorieva.
"Scientists of the Molecular Palaeontology laboratory in Yakutsk have extracted DNA from the bones of ancient fossil animals - this is the first stage of large-scale genome research. The data has been sent to the Sooam Biotechnology Research Foundation,  South Korea for decryption. It will be followed with interpretation and analysis in Yakutsk in summer. Before that no one ever in our country did not make deciphering the genome of fossil animals, "- she said.
"DNA has been taken from the animals' bones, where the preservation is much better than in the tissues. Besides we have used the latest paleontological finds, which were disovered this nd last year. The data will then be compared to modern animals", - Mrs. Grigorieva said.
According to the scientist, the first results will be announced in the summer of 2017.
In March 2017 representatives of the International Molecular Palaeontology Center under the North Eastern Federal University will for the first time go to China to conduct research in deciphering the DNA of the Malolyakhovsky mammoth at the Beijing Genomics Institute . "This is the world's leading institute for genetic analysis, and Chinese scientists will try to clone our mammoth", - Lena Grigorieva added.
The carcass of a woolly mammoth was found in the Maly Lyakhovsky Island of Novosibirsk Archipelago in the autumn of 2012. South Korean scientists already tried to clone it, but to no avail.
