1) Jurassic Park (movie and book) projected the concept of regenerating dinosaurs based on knowing sequence of dinosaur genomes. We now have sequence of the Neanderthal (ancient hominid species which went vanished approximately 40,000 years ago) genome which is as accurate as the genome of the modern human. Hence we may have potential to regenerate the Neanderthal – would you be interested in trying to regenerate extinct species from genome sequences?
