Default Scientists Have Sequenced Mammoth DNA That's Over a Million Years Old

Scientists Have Sequenced Mammoth DNA That's Over a Million Years Old


17 FEBRUARY 2021

In a feat right at the limits of our scientific capabilities, an international team of geneticists has recovered and sequenced the oldest DNA to date.

From the teeth of three ancient mammoths that roamed Siberia between 700,000 and 1.2 million years ago, the researchers extracted extremely degraded DNA, and pieced it back together to reveal a previously unknown genetic mammoth lineage.
