Russian and South Korean scientists, including "cloning pioneer" Hwang Woo-Suk, announced today that they will be collaborating on cloning a woolly mammoth. Sky News reports that the scientists will remove DNA from an unfrozen baby mammoth and implant it into an Indian elephant's egg where (hopefully?) an embryo will form. "This will be a really tough job, but we believe it is possible," one South Korean scientist said.
Woo-Suk is famously controversial. He successfully cloned a dog (with the unsuccessful name "Snuppy") but the human stem cells he said he cloned were later revealed to be fake.
