It would be a revolution of sorts if and when a woman is located who would be willing to become a surrogate mother to a Neanderthal baby.
It has been reported in foxnews.com of 21st January 2013 that a certain George Church, a Professor of genetics in the Harvard University has claimed to be able to resurrect the long-extinct Neanderthal man if he can get a woman to agree to become its surrogate mother.
It seems the DNA of the distant relative of Man has been rebuilt through genetic sequencing and all it now needs is a willing woman.
It was the culmination of a project in the Max Planck Institute to sequence the genetic code of a 30,000 years old Neanderthal woman – test has been done.
In the opinion of George Church, with that data it would be possible to recreate the Neanderthal man.
Such exercises have also been done to bring back to life another ancient relative of Man – the denisovan – all that the researchers had with them were a piece of fingerbone and two molars.
