Sry if this has been posted I did not see it.
A Canadian dentist is hoping to clone John Lennon from one of his rotten molars he bought at an auction for $30,000.
He says he has already begun sequencing the DNA, but he will not clone him in any country where it is illegal.
The rotten tooth was passed down to his housekeeper in the mid 60s and had been in the family every since.
"Many Beatles fans remember where they were when they heard John Lennon was shot. I hope they also live to hear the day he was given another
chance," Zuk said. The tooth has already been couriered to an unnamed US lab where scientists are "considering ways to extract [its] genetic code".
"I am nervous and excited at the possibility that we will be able to fully sequence John Lennon's DNA," Zuk said. "With researchers working on
ways to clone mammoths, the same technology certainly could make human cloning a reality."
It seems like this guy thinks if it works it will actually be John Lennon because he says "To say I had a small part in bringing back one of rock's
greatest stars would be mind-blowing,"
Im not sure what country's human cloning is legal in, but I gotta say I'm all for it and I hope he can do it .
He says he also has one of Elvis Presley teeth..
He could try to clone the king and the walrus that would be pretty cool
