Scientist want to grow dinosaurs from chicken embryos

Will it cluck or will it roar?

Hans Larsson, the Canada Research Chair in Macro Evolution at Montreal’s McGill University wants to make a dinosaur. From a chicken. Awesome.

Larsson believes by flipping certain genetic levers during a chicken embryo’s development, he can reproduce the dinosaur anatomy, he told AFP in an interview.

Though still in its infancy, the research could eventually lead to hatching live prehistoric animals, but Larsson said there are no plans for that now, for ethical and practical reasons — a dinosaur hatchery is “too large an enterprise.”

The idea for the project, Larsson said, came about during discussions with renowned American paleontologist Jack Horner, who served as technical advisor for the Jurassic Park films.

Horner recently wrote a book entitled “How to Build A Dinosaur,” in which he refers to the embryo experiment as part of a quest to create a “chickenosaurus.” []

If he ever get around to create a dinosaur, I hope he do a T. rex. They are, after all, really chickens.
