Scientists have completed the oldest mitochondrial genome sequence from
the 33,000-year-old remains of a woolly mammoth; results show mammoths
and Asian elephants are a sister species that diverged soon after their
common ancestor split from the lineage of the African elephant.

Some 10,000 years after the last of their kind wandered the North
American and Eurasian wilderness, woolly mammoths (Mammuthus primigenius)
