Regenerating A T-Rex

Scientists may be able to regenerate a T-Rex from the remains of an unborn T-Rex and genome sequencing.

Because the baby was found with its mother and medullary bone intact, scientists can extract a lot more DNA than a standard bone.

Scientists have already been modifying the genes of a chicken embryo to develop dino-like fibulas.

According to Dr. Madsen Pirie, director of the Adam Smith Institute (ASI), “Dinosaurs will be recreated by back-breeding from flightless birds.”

Since scientists have only discovered short fragments of dino-DNA, they don’t know how to modify a bird’s DNA to replicate their ancestors’ DNA.

The only way to put together a dino-DNA is for scientists to combine millions of short fragments together and figure out which order the fragments should be placed in.
