Mammoth cells found

Members of an international paleontological expedition have discovered live mammoth cells in Yakutia, in northeast Russia.

According to the press service of the North-Eastern Federal University, mammoth soft and fat tissue and hair and bone marrow were found in a frozen subsoil layer at a depth of 100 meters.
Scientists found carcasses of mammoths, bison and other prehistoric animals at the same site one year ago.
The recent finds shed light on what these animals looked like in glacial periods as the world’s leading paleontologists explore the possibility of cloning them.
