When a completely preserved mammoth carcass with fur, liquid blood and muscle tissue is discovered, a new, high-stakes scientific and potentially lucrative quest to resurrect the species à la “Jurassic Park” mounts. Worldwide, biologists from the Chinese National GeneBank to Harvard’s Medical School are working on reinventing life to make virus-resistant human cells, reanimate extinct species, and build an entire human genome from scratch.
