The 23 kg dodo bird that went extinct 400 years ago will be alive again! Genetic engineering company claim

An American research company will try something that no one has done before. Science has progressed so much in the modern era that man also has the power to revive nature’s extinct species, as the claim of this research firm seems to demonstrate. A research firm called Colossal Biosciences says it is trying to revive the dodo bird that went extinct 400 years ago.

The Dodo bird became extinct on earth in the 17th century. Now Colossal Biosciences says it wants to revive it through genetic changes. To do this, the company talks about resorting to gene editing. If this happens, it will be a great achievement for humanity by scientists. Colossal Biosciences has presented a complete investigation related to Dodo on its official website, in which the firm has also explained how to revive Dodo.

This can be shown to be true only after this company has fully read and deciphered the dodo genome. The scientists here have started working on it. To do this, scientists are relying on stem cell technology, which can revive extinct species up to 350 years ago. If this happens, in the future, even huge creatures like dinosaurs can be seen roaming the earth again. At the same time, it has been said in the research report that this may be possible through gene editing.

According to the conclusion drawn on the basis of the genetic study, the dodo is considered to be close to pigeons. It used to be a heavy bird whose weight could range from 13kg to 23kg. It was a bird in appearance but could not fly. Dodo was first seen in 1507. After that, they were killed and eaten and gradually their number decreased. Then, in the 17th century, their species became extinct. The scientists at Colossal Biosciences believe that if this is successful, we will be able to save species that are now on the brink of extinction. With the help of science, scientists are doing everything they can to make it a reality.
