Le Dr Zuk a payé 32 000 $ pour la dent du célèbre ex-Beatle, et l'a envoyée à des chercheurs de l'Université de Pennsylvanie dans l'espoir d'obtenir le séquençage du code génétique.
Dr. Zuk paid $ 32,000 for the tooth of the famous ex-Beatle, and sent to researchers at the University of Pennsylvania in the hope of sequencing the genetic code.
The dentist, who collects the DNA of several living or dead, like Marilyn Monroe and Paul McCartney stars, believes that the purchase of the tooth of the famous musician is "the best decision" of his life.
If scientists are able to clone mammoths and sheep, surely they can clone humans, according to Dr. Zuk.
"It will be on my tombstone, I participated to bring to life one of the biggest rock stars," he said.
Establish the sequencing of the genetic code of John Lennon - which could lead to the creation of a clone - would "need to recognize the legal rights of human clones," said Dr. Zuk.
Moreover, it would allow cloning celebrities continue to contribute, returning to life.
