  • Woolly mammoth discovery raises exciting possibilities - Technology & Science - CBC News
    related to modern day elephants went extinct over most of their range around 10 000 years ago Flying Puffin Wikimedia Commons I would say it probably is a phenomenally well preserved mammoth that has good DNA Poinar said The better the DNA the more likely we get closer to the true genome which means ultimately if people s desires are to clone something you get something closer to the real deal Poinar said he recently heard from a scientist he collaborates with who was asked by the Russian researchers whether the team would like to have a look at the carcass Yeah of course we would Poinar said Blood raises puzzling questions Campbell said one thing that intrigues him is how the blood sample was even preserved for so long mammoths died out over most of their range around 10 000 years ago and some specimens that have been discovered in the Arctic are far older than that He s also puzzled by why the blood remained liquid at temperatures well below the freezing point of water He doubts the possibility raised by the Russian researchers that mammoth blood had natural antifreeze properties I m skeptical about it he said He suggested that it s possible that the breakdown of proteins within the blood may have lowered its freezing point or antifreeze producing bacteria got into the blood However he said the only way to tell would be to test it Share Tools Report Typo Send Feedback Stay Connected with CBC News Mobile Facebook Podcasts Twitter Alerts Newsletter Big Box Advertisement Top News Headlines Pistorius family shaken by bloody bathroom images Oscar Pistorius family is shaken by the graphic leaked images broadcast by a British television station that purport to show the bloodied bathroom where the Olympian fatally shot his girlfriend on Valentine s Day more Turkey s PM rejects protesters dictator label Turkey s prime minister rejected claims that is an authoritarian leader dismissing protesters as an extremist fringe even as hundreds moved back into the landmark square that was the site of the fiercest anti government outburst in years more Train derails in bridge collapse near Sudbury Ont A train trestle over the Wahnapitae River near Sudbury Ont collapsed on Sunday sending freight cars plummeting into the water police say more Syrian rebels Hezbollah battle in worst clash in Lebanon Syrian rebels fought with the gunmen from the Hezbollah militia in a deadly clash on Lebanese soil a security official and local media said Sunday in the latest sign Syria s civil war is spilling over the country s borders more Queen s coronation made history for Canada and for television It was a ceremony steeped in pomp pageantry and centuries of British tradition but Queen Elizabeth s coronation 60 years ago today also marked a revolution in the power of television and some Canadian firsts including the first time a Queen of Canada was crowned more Must Watch Latest Technology Science News Headlines Big asteroid with its
