Tasmanian Tiger RNA Found in Preserved Body

Tasmanian+Tiger+RNA+Found+in+Preserved+Body

Very recently a group of scientists found RNA in the preserved body of a Tasmanian tiger. RNA is a temporary strand of the organism’s DNA and allows whoever’s looking at it to partly understand the configuration of the organism’s genes. The tiger went extinct in a zoo in Australia in 1936. The discovery of its RNA could help those scientists bring back the species in some way, although bringing the species back wasn’t the goal of the project.
