Australian Scientis at the Universtiy of Melbourne have sucessfully ressurected the extinct gene of the Tasmanian Tiger (Thylacinus cynocephalus). The Tasmanian Tiger was a large carnivorous Australian marsupial which was hunted to extinction in the early 1900's. Scientists have sucessfully isolated the Col21A gene and injected into a mouse embryo. This process was sucessfull in 'resurecting' the extinct gene. Similar experiments have been conducted using mammoth DNA.
