    This screams more of The Island of Dr. Monroe than Jurassic Park.

    They are using snippets of DNA from the mouse that are similar to the DNA from the thylacine (or actually vice versa right now) the same way they used the snippets of frog DNA in Jurassic Park.

    The ultimate goal is to clone an extinct animal.

    The first thing I pictured when I heard about this the other day was Ian Malcom's speech in the first JP movie. The second thing I pictured was safely seeing a TRex rampage on TV.

    Fuck yeah.

    Yeppers.

    Even though I've only seen it once, my brain went to the second JP:

    "That's how it always starts. Then later there's rrrrunning and screaming...."

    Glad I wasn't the only one who thought of Ian Malcom quotes.

    "But if the Pirates of the Caribbean breaks down, the pirates don't eat the tourists."

    Also, that fetus picture is a lolcat waiting to happen, even though it's not really a lolcat.

    Forget Jurassic Park!

    Try Ancestor! (Viewer descression is advised IE: Not safe for kiddies.)

    In that story they replicated one of the first mammals using cow DNA to create a viable Xenotransplantation animal... and things went REALLY wrong. GREAT story.


    So isn't there other non-mammals they can use that are more like the tylacine? Other Marcupials?

    They were so busy asking whether or not they could do it, that they didn't think about whether or not they should. :D

    I for one would really like to see a dodo come from all of this. I'll take two when they clone them

    Thread title warranted some joke along the lines of me coming ITT and going "Someone call me?"

    Oh man I can't wait to have a baby raptor all to myself, I will name him George and I will love him and pet him and squeeze him and then he'll rip my throat out and go on a rampage and...

    On a more serious note - holywin. That's AWESOME, I hope they're able to pull it off... granted I have that whole "things went extinct for a reason/natural balance" belief, but then again mankind's expansion is supposedly responsible for the premature extinction and endangerment of so many species that it's hard to say what was natural and what wasn't.
