Evolutionary molecular biologist Beth Shapiro’s meteoric career has centered on the analysis of ancient DNA, genetic material recovered from frozen, mummified, or otherwise preserved animals and plants. A Rhodes Scholar, winner of a MacArthur “Genius Grant,” and an Oxford University research fellow, Shapiro has written about ecology for a number of academic journals, including Science, Molecular Biology and Evolution, and PLoS Biology. Her new book examines the incredible and controversial process of de-extinction, the means through which mammoths, passenger pigeons, dodos, and other extinct species can truly be resurrected, reintroduced to the wild, and conserved for future generations.
