Submission + - 'Lazarus Project' Ressurects Extinct Frog Species (popsci.com) 1

AbsoluteXyro writes: Extinct since 1983, the Gastric Brooding Frog (the only frog to give birth through it's mouth) has been given a new lease on life. The 'Lazarus Project' at the University of Newcastle has achieved a major milestone by successfully cloning a living embryo of the long dead frog. Unfortunately, the embryo didn't survive long. Using somatic-cell nuclear transfer with genetic material from well preserved specimens and the deactivated eggs of a related species of frog, the researchers believe it won't be long until this unique frog is hopping again.
