Es el sueño de los niños de todo el mundo ver a las bestias gigantes caminar por la Tierra de nuevo. ¿Podría —y debería— realizarse ese sueño? Hendrik Poinar da una charla informativa sobre la próxima —de verdad— gran cosa: la búsqueda para diseñar una criatura que se parezca mucho a nuestro amigo peludo, el mamut lanudo. El primer paso, secuenciar el genoma del mamut lanudo, está casi completo. Y es enorme. (Filmado en TEDxDeExtinction.)
