Is this sci-fi come to life? Colossal Biosciences, a startup in Dallas backed by Chris Hemsworth, is going to try to resurrect the extinct Tasmanian Tiger.
The plan is to use the DNA of a close relative, a fat-tailed dunnart, and edit its genes. If the group is successful, they plan on releasing the animal back to its native Australia.
The Tasmanian Tiger has been extinct since the 1930s.
