2 million-year-old DNA discovers the once-vibrant Arctic

In a groundbreaking study, scientists have successfully sequenced 2 million-year-old DNA discovered in North Greenland. Using advanced technology, the study found that the Arctic’s polar desert was once a thriving ecosystem, home to a wide range of species from trees and herbs to mastodons and marine life.

The DNA extraction, found frozen in Ice Age sediments, challenges scientists’ previous belief that DNA cannot last longer than a million years. The research team is led by Professor Eske Willerslev (University of Cambridge) and Professor Kurt H. Kjær (University of Copenhagen).
