Cloning Neanderthal Man?

Well, not quite yet.
But, according to this article on YahooNews, they are sequencing the Neanderthal genome. At least, they’re starting to try and do it. No one, including the scientists involved are sure that they’ll be 100% successful, but, sometimes, it’s the attempt that counts. And, there will be volumes of useful information that will be a by-product of this effort, not the least of which will be a greater understanding of the human genome.
Hmm, Plieocene Park? Well, maybe we’re a ways off from that, but it’s still pretty cool.
