Question

There is a movement to recreate the Woolly Mammoth through genome engineering.  It is proposed to be done by

manipulating the genome of elephants.  Genome analysis can provide clues regarding how this might most efficaciously done.  BLAST the Mammuthus primigenius mitochondria gene cytochrome B YP_398766.1 against Database: Reference proteins (refseq_protein) limiting to Organism: Elephantidae (taxid: 9780).  Looking at the BLAST results (select all that apply): 

No taxid members of the have related cytochrome B sequences.
The Woolly Mammoth cytochrome B sequence is more closely related to American Mastodons (Mammut americanum) than to modern elephants.
The Distance tree of results of the mitochondria cytochrome B gene indicate that African Savanna elephants (Loxodonta africana) may be a better choice than Indian Elephants (Elphas maximus) due to distance in the tree.
The Distance tree of results of the mitochondria cytochrome B locus indicate that African savanna elephants are more closely related to Indian elephants than to African forest elephants (Loxodonta cyclotis).
