Now a similar technology is used in the framework of a project by George Church of Harvard University and the American organization Revive & Restore. They have already identified the DNA of mammoths and the DNA of their closest relative, the Asian elephant. Gradually, during the editing process, the differences between the two genomes will be eliminated.
In general, there is no consensus in society about the revival of extinct species. On the one hand, this allows you to create a look that resembles an already lost one. On the other hand, the bred species is still new, therefore it may also be subject to extinction due to its scarcity. A problem may arise with the habitat of such animals: it is not entirely clear where they would live in their natural environment.
