In 2012 Russian Scientists Successfully Revived A 32,000 Year-Old Artic Flower

(Mayukh Saha) A group of scientists back in 2012 managed to successfully revive a 32,000-year-old plant from its fruit, which was buried in the Siberian permafrost. This team from the Institute of Cell Biophysics and the Institute of Physicochemical and Biological Problems in Soil Science, Russian Academy of Sciences published a study in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, where they explained how the fruit tissues of Silene stenophylla from the Late Pleistocene Age were used to regenerate the ancient plant. Clonal micropropagation techniques and in vitro tissue culture were the techniques used for this purpose.
