Controversial scientist Hwang Woo-Suk has succeeded in cloning a prairie wolf. And that tastes like more ...
The researchers took some skin cells from prairie wolves and extracted the core. That core was then placed in the egg cell of a dog. The egg was fertilized and replaced. The dog then gave birth to a real coyote on June 17 this year. The AFP reports this, among other things.
A total of eight prairie wolves have been cloned. Researcher Hwang Woo-Suk revealed the wolves today.
The researcher became world famous in 2004 when it appeared that he had succeeded in cloning a human embryo. Two years later, it turned out that he had largely invented the research. The researcher fell deeply, but seems to be completely back.
If it is up to Hwang Woo-Suk and his colleagues, it will not end with the prairie wolf. They now want to try to clone a hyena dog. Then it's the mammoth's turn.
