De droom van kinderen over de hele wereld: gigantische beesten weer over de Aarde te zien lopen. Zou die droom kunnen – en moeten – worden gerealiseerd? Hendrik Poinar houdt een informatieve talk over de volgende – echt – grote gebeurtenis: de zoektocht om een wezen te bouwen dat erg lijkt op onze harige vriend, de wolharige mammoet. De eerste stap, om het wolharige genoom te sequencen, is bijna compleet. En het is enorm. (Gefilmd bij TEDxDeExtinction.)
