Mammoth Mitochondrial DNA Decoded

Holy pachyderms! The efforts to sequence the mammoth genome are moving along faster than I hoped. The sequencing of the mammoth mitochondrial DNA settles some taxonomic and evolutionary issues, but it really doesn't get us much closer to mammoths at the zoo.

For that, they'll need to sequence the main DNA sequence. Which is millions of base pairs long, not just 5,000.
