Harvard scientists in search of a surrogate mother for Neanderthals


22/01/2013

Scientists at Harvard Medical School announced a vacancy for the position of a surrogate mother for Neanderthals. Thus, they are going to check the possibility of cloning a caveman.

Professor George Church of Harvard, despite the name, which speaks for itself (Church - Church), is going to break for the sake of science is very strict religious taboos and implement the cloning of the first man, both literally and figuratively. Neanderthals are known, are the first direct ancestors of the people who came in turn from apes.

Professor Church is currently engaged in an active search for a woman who agrees to become a volunteer. By the hypothesis of the experiment, she placed in the transplanted stem cells from an embryo of Neanderthal DNA. This method is one of the most famous geneticists plans to reconstruct the population, which disappeared 33 thousand years ago to the ground. And although the idea of something like a professor plot for the film "Jurassic Park", he is convinced that will make a huge step forward in the development of science.

He had already made up of DNA, completing the analysis of the bones of Neanderthals. Placed in the stem cell DNA gets into a human embryo at a very early stage of its development. According to the scientist, the cells in the embryo will affect such a way that it can evolve from a real Neanderthal, which is not to be feared.

According to one of the creators of "The Human Genome", historians demonize Neanderthals in vain. In fact, they were highly intelligent beings and as the size of the brain is the human brain. In addition to being the creatures were able to make the first primitive tools. "At a time when humanity is at risk of collision with the threat of global epidemics or deprivation of our planet itself, similar experiments in the field of cloning will be only for the benefit of, - said the scientist. - It now remains to find a woman with a penchant for adventure. She will be a volunteer."
