Hans Larsson, the Canada Research Chair in Macroevolution at Montreal's McGill University has claimed that he will turn a chicken back into its prehistoric form (Meaning, a DINOSAUR!) via reverse-engineering.
What he is planning to do, is to alter the chicken genes known to have evolved since the Cretaceous. And despite the lack of experience in genetic engineering, he has already secured funding from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada, the Canada Research Chairs program and the National Geographic Society.
This just goes to show how these organisations are willing to fund almost anything as long as it sounds like it is for the name of Science and mankind. I mean, the guy's not even an expert in this field and he wants to do something as impossible as turning a chicken to a dinosaur.
Well, tell us when you've spend the sponsored money on nothing.
