ABSTRACT
This article provides information on a genetic project led by evolutionary biologist Michael Archer which aims to re-create extinct animals from DNA fragments. Despite his failure in his first cloning attempt, Archer and his team hopes to restore degraded DNA to reconstruct the genome of the Tasmanian tiger, which was hunted to extinction by 1936.
