How to clone a mammoth: The science of de-extinction

21 May, 2015 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

£8

Could extinct species, like mammoths and passenger pigeons, be brought back to life? Beth Shapiro, evolutionary biologist and pioneer in ancient DNA research, takes us through the astonishing and controversial process of de-extinction. From deciding which species should be restored, to sequencing their genomes, to anticipating how revived populations might be overseen in the wild, Shapiro will explore the extraordinary cutting-edge science that is being used to resurrect the past.
