The genomicists are 20 percent away from a complete set, yet their work is far from over. Out of the remaining data bases, some could belong to the mammoth, but it could also very well belong to other organisms that contaminated the sample like bacteria and fungi. In order to determine which sequences belong to the mammoth, the Penn researchers will have to wait for scientists at the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard to complete sequencing the African elephant's genome. They will also have to wait for additional funding to finish sequencing the woolly mammoth's genome. For now they claim their dataset is "100 times more extensive than any other published dataset for an extinct species."
