my #1 question - do we NEED a mannoth ?
seriously - this is a lot of work at cutting edge genetics - to creat a " mammoth "
i personally would rather see the funds equiment and expertise re-tasked to a food or medical program to either erradicate a genetic desiese or improve a staple crop that will deduce world hunger
mammoths are cool - but do we need them ??

Europe cloning experiments are more advance that here in the US because they are not as restricted.

But there seems little harm in resurrecting a mammoth.
A short faced bear might not be the brightest of choices, though.... But it'd sure be cool!

So it'd be like if they took a chimpanzee and changed its genes to make it less hairy and weaker. Still not a human.
