'Adventurous' Surrogate Wanted to Carry Cloned Neanderthal
A Harvard genetics professor says he can clone a neanderthal:
“You have got a shot at anything where you have the DNA,” Church explained to German magazine Der Spiegel. “The limit for finding DNA fragments is probably around a million years.”
It’s only been about 30,000 years since Neanderthals are thought to have died off, and scientists have discovered DNA fragments from the long-lost species in fossils in Europe.
In theory, the DNA could be assembled into an embryo, which could be planted inside a human — a very daring woman, Church said.
Just head to the AFA or FRC. Great DNA pool there.
