According to Entrepreneur, instead of using ancient DNA a la Jurassic Park researchers have opted instead to modify the DNA of a chicken to reverse-engineer them back into dinosaurs.

In an attempt to reverse evolution, the team has already made significant strides in mutating chickens back to the very creatures from which they descended. If that wasn’t enough genetic splicing and dicing, Harvard scientists attempted a similar feat recently by inserting the genes of a woolly mammoth into elephants in order to recreate the extinct beasts. Whoa baby.
