Mastodon Clone?

Posted: November 30, 2012 by Tina Duver in Ask our Expert!

Hi Dr. Buckler,

Mrs. Duver told us you were a molecular geneticist. We are wondering if there has been anything found on this mastodon dig that would allow the mastodon to be cloned? We learned about the baby mammoth from Siberia, but we did not know if a mastodon DNA has ever been collected.  Do scientists try to clone extinct plants as well?

    I think it would be amazing if we could clone the mastodon, if we ever find DNA. 😊

    Yeah that would be cool, we think we found some mastodon hair.
