March 14 (Bloomberg) -- Russian scientists and a South Korean colleague will attempt to clone a woolly mammoth from a specimen frozen in the Siberian tundra for 10,000 years, RIA Novosti reported.

The Institute of Applied Ecology in Siberia’s Yakutsk region plan to implant genetic material from th mammoth into an egg of a live female elephant, the state-run Russian news service said.

The elephant will carry the fetus for 22 months and “hopefully give birth to a live baby mammoth,” RIA cited an unidentified official from the institute as saying.
