The world of genome editing is expanding massively. It is expected to be used in the future in the world of medicine (gene therapy, pharming), agriculture (GM crops), and many other uses.
In the world of de-extinction, I found out about a device that could be of good use to it. Meet MAGE, or Multiplex Automated Genomic Engineering.
The MAGE device is still a prototype, but so far, it has been able to make bacteria produce five times the normal quantity of lycopene. The device can perform up to 50 genome alterations at a time, meaning that a genome could be altered drastically in a few days or weeks. This means that we don't have to synthesize an organism's genome from scratch.
This is good news for creating "dinosaurs" (I do not call it recre…Read more >

I'm sure most of you now saw the trailer for Jurassic World. In the trailer, they explained that the new D-Rex was going to be a genetically modified hybrid. But the question I'm sure some of you are wondering is: What will it be a hybrid of? Obviously just by the name alone, T-Rex is going to be in the genome somwhere. But, what else? A lot of people think it's a hybrid of Tyrannosaurus Rex and Velociraptor. That could be the case. Maybe it could be a hybrid of T-Rex and Carnotaurus.
What do you guys think? What dinosaurs do you think they used to make D-Rex?Read more >

Alright folks, I'm starting this chat to be a civilized debate/conversation. Points will be given and taken, based on incoming information and past events. Now, I don't want paragraph-long arguements. And I don't want people arguing for mere fun.
For example, the newly released trailer shows a Mososaur, it's website refers to Mount Sibo, and an evicted Costa Rican tribe from Isla Nublar. That alone adds 3 solid points to the game being canon. You can look into the details and give decent points, and any information from the past films is also considered.Read more >
Well my friends it finally aired, the trailer for Jurassic World. If any of you haven't seen it, head over to youtube now! I would like to know what you think? What dinosaurs did you see, which ones do you hope to see, what do you think of the bioengineered dinosaur angle?Read more >
YES! ITS FINALLY HERE!!! 2 days early!!!Read more >
Uses CGI stand-ins from JP1 and the D-rex CGI isn't finished, but the Mosasaur one is! http://iconosquare.com/kenbarbforever
Photo of the Mosasaur:
UPDATE: Leaked clips have been removed.
UPDATE 2: I've just been sent some pictures from a FOURTH leaked video! One with an overturned gyrosphere, and 2 others involving Pteranodons attacking a helicopter. Seems like we're getting the Ptero Attack from the scrapped finale of TLW!Read more >
Alright folks, Universal Pictures just released the very first footage of Jurassic World, in a Teaser Trailer to hype the release of the Theatrical Trailer on the 27th this week. Check the footage out here and let me know what you all think!Read more >
Jurassic Park: The Game is simply NOT canon. It is NOT an official sequel to the original film.
Telltale bought Universal's support for the project and did everything they could to deliver an authentic Jurassic Park experience, even going so far as writing a story woven into the events of the film. However it is no more a true sequel to the film than any glorified Fan-Fic is.
Telltale added characters and animals that weren't in the film and weren't even being kept on Isla Nublar.
When Jurassic Park states there were only 3 Raptors being housed on the island during the events of the film then how dare a third party call that a lie. NO other living Raptors were known about by ANY Jurassic Park staff. They had no reason to keep anything from …Read more >
This text is intended to serve as a back story and reconciliation of the design changes in Dinosaurs between films. Namely the Raptors and Pteranodons.
To properly reconcile the films and the Dinosaur changes seen throughout, one must first realize what the Dinosaurs INGEN created really are.
The Dinosaurs of Jurassic Park are, quite simply, mutants.
They are made complete by combining the DNA of other creatures with the original Dinosaur DNA which results in the animals possesing features and attributes not found in their true-to-history counterparts. They have been tweaked and modified to be as close as possible to real Dinosaurs but they are still not 100% genuine.
I have added a few quotes, links and personal theories to help prove thi…

The link above goes to the newly launched "Teaser Site" for Jurassic World. The site features new and extensive details, including the announced death of John Hammond in 1997 after TLW:JP, and the aquisition of InGen by Masrani Global, a corporation that aimed to establish a new park on Nublar.
The site also features several new photos, including the first appearance of B.D. Wong once again as Dr. Henry Wu
What's also incredible about this site and the newly announced details, is the absolute dedication some of the details have to established canon. Just reading through the "Preserve Isla Nublar" section, I noted that the filmmakers took Nima's tribe and referenced it, as …Read more >
Here is the first look at Diabolus Rex: http://www.groovebricks.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/LEGO-Jurassic-World-2015-1.jpg
Now you might be wondering why it is lego, and this is why. Lego are producing Jurassic world sets for next year, but a Chinease company has released images of them, as a lot of the models have already been made. The other models include a new T.rex plus 4 different coloured raptors, suggesting that there are 4 different named raptors, presumably the ones Chris Pratt looks after.

Thanks to help from The Cold Storage Room page and John Alfred Hammond CEO I now know all of the 15 species that they cloned in the film cannon. In Jurassic Park the game there are 9 species of dinosaurs on the first island. So the remainder of the species are on the second island.
Species in Jurassic Park The Game Map:
- Tyrannosaurus rex
- Herrerasaurus (possibly a replacement for Baryonyx)
- Compsognathus (possibly a replacement for Segisaurus)
Species not on the first island/the rest of the cloned species:
- Pachycephalosaurus (possibly a replacement for Proceratosaurus)
- Ceratosaurus (possibly a replacement for Metriacanthosaurus)
Recently, I've been creating a Jurassic World movie site, as well as a facebook page.However it doesn't seem like many JW fans visit it. So please visit the website and tell me what you think! Thank you!

Tomorrow, At Comic Con Jurassic World will make it's first debut!
The special teaser is unknown weither it will be small slice of footage, a teaser trailer or even a official trailer with chunks of footage.
UPDATE: Sadly, Jurassic World didn't make an appearence at all. No Teaser, No Footage, Nothing but a poster, JW Car and a TREX head that was supposed to be a build to the most exciting day at Comic Con that brought us nothing.
UPDATE #1: After the shame of Jurassic World not being seen at Comic Con, Jurassic World Teaser is set to be released on the Vines App, the time is yet unknown #JurassicWorldRead more >
Awhile back, I purchased a Jurassic Park /// Prop on ebay. It came from a very highly recommended seller, and his story claimed that he new someone working close with the film when it was made, and received this item.
The prop I supposedly purchased is the screen-used business card from Kirby Enterprises. Unfortunately, it came with no COA (Certificate of Authenticity), but that is understandable. From what I've read, several of these were produced for the film, but only one or possibly two made it into the final film. I've noticed that the black backround has smudged off to the right of the "K" and left of "Paul Kirby's" information. Ironically, I've also compared this to the film, and this particular are where the smudge appears is exactl…Read more >

Today I compared our article on JW with the one on wikipedia. One thing was clear to me. We need someone who will take the responsibility for writing the articles about . And we need one now.
Our articles , Jurassic World/Rumours and Jurassic World/Production are in a very bad shape. We need someone who can write properly and will keep the articles free of vandals and update them as soon as there is new trustworthy news.

Hello everyone, I was wondering what your thoughts about the plot-line for Jurassic World would be? I have several moments and plot elements that I think will be used, let's see what you think.
Main Overview & Known Material:
Okay, everyone pretty much knows that a new, fully functional Jurassic-themed amusement park, Hotel-resort, golf club, and tourist attraction is fully functional, called Jurassic World. Several photos of a new map of Isla Nublar have been released, and original Jurassic Park fans are overjoyed to finally have this film made. Anyway, several cast members have also been named, such as Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Omar Sy, Irrfan Khan, and B.D. Wong (thankfully returning). Little to no elements are known about their c…Read more >

I was looking up stuff about the new film earlier today and found these pictures. You can see them to the right.
These are from the new Jurassic Park film. What do ya'll think of these?Read more >
SOme of the filming is in an abandoned theme park. This could be a new attraction, or possibly one of the old ones from the original park. The question is, what will it be called?Read more >
According to SciFied the ruins of the Visitor Center will appear in .
First of all, I think that will be great. However, I am very afraid that the door of this Visitor Center will still be intact. Because if it is, it will contradict with the events of Jurassic Park: The Game. In T. rex Showdown! Rexy destroyes the stairs, bites of a piece of railing and bursts through the Center's front; destroying the door and a piece of the skulped skeleton above it.
If the Visitor Center was back in use, it could be that the front was repaired. However, the buildings is probably in ruins and found by characters who are lost in the jungle. So, I don't think anyone would bother to repair it.
What do you think. Would the intact front of the Visitor Center be e…

On the first day of Jurassic June, a tweet send by the Twitter account of jurassicworld.org has photo sent by Phil Tippett according to them.
From what is seen it appears he's been working on the model of a juvenile Triceratops and the photo has watermark with the words "JW".
I don't know if this is legit, but I feel it is worth sharing if it truly is.
UPDATE: It is confirmed by the people over the account that this is not a legit photo! The image is from a Behind the Scenes special of the original Jurassic Park!Read more >
It seems that the plan to recreate woolly mammoths is already in progress. Not just talking and planning, but actual progress. Three genes from the mammoth have already been migrated into elephant cells. In three years, we could have a mammoth-elephant hybrid embryo ready to be implanted into an Asian elephant uterus.
I emailed George Church (the scientist doing the project) to see if it was true. And it was indeed true. You can see his email in the thumbnail.
Instead of trying to recreate a full mammoth genome (pretty much impossible), he is instead creating a mammoth-elephant hybrid genome, which is much easier. George Church's TED talk explains this further. The genome-editing method he uses is known as CRISPR.Read more >

So this happened today.
Take it with a grain of salt. JobLo is supposedly a reliable site but this also sounds heavily based on the old script. Probably not worth it to add these details to the wiki yet, but let's hear what you guys think about it.Read more >
So I saw this: http://www.jurassicworld.org/?id=121 recently and thought it was worth sharing. Does anyone know anymore about this concept art?

At 30 July 2010 THE8PURPLE2 created a Facebook page for Park Pedia. We all thought it would be the perfect medium to promote this wiki and attract new members.
The Facebook page can be found here: Jurassic Park Wiki.
This wiki is in a terminal shortage of active knowledgeable editors and admins. So, I really wanted to give it a try.
For the more than last year the fb page had an update almost every day. Single handedly, with some short help from Kabilan29, I made sure the members had funny/interesting updates every day.

However, my time wasn't well wasted. After all that time spend, we have yet to recieve our 200th like. Furthermore, the closest thing to new members it attracted was some Redneck fundamentalist complaining that we talked about ev…

This wiki still needs a lot of work. There are countless of edits I'd like to make, but most of the time I don't have time or energy to do all the research and write the whole thing down. I wish that other, I mean new non-admin users, would help in this huge undertaking. However, most new users only add (useless) categories, speculation or reduntant statements. Still, I like to believe that those people are real Jurassic Park fans that would love to help us if they knew what to do and were better motivated. How do we manage that?
Wikia tried to give us a hand and gave us Badges! Badges are a very nice idea to encourage users to be more active and get some reward for their work. However, I have seen that it isn't working. The current Wikia Ba…Read more >
Colin Trevorrow said on Twitter that they are gonna create a new documentary film about recreating dinosaurs!
The main reason I'm interested in Jurassic Park is because the dinosaurs are brought back to life. Until Primal Carnage: Genesis is finally released, there is no (serious) other dinosaur franchise about that topic.
When I saw the news, I thought that Trevorrow is a little late. In 2012 the History Channel made the docu film Jurassic Park: The True Story and Discovery made Dinosaurs: Return To Life?. There haven't been great breakthoughs since then, so what is left to tell.
Still, I think a lot can happen in the coming year before Trevorrow starts to work on the docu film. Jack Horner's team has discovered that iron in dinosaur tissue can prese…

In The Lost World:Jurassic Park (film), the men on the boat that took the t rex over to San Diego where found dead with no explanation whatsoever. In the original script, instead of the T Rex, it would be Velociraptors, who killed the crew on the boat. We don't see or hear from Velociraptors so either it wasn't them, or there are Velociraptors in San Diego. So what do you think killed the men, tell me about it below.Read more >
Alright, I know that the three major canons (Novel, Film, Trespasser, etc.) are different in several ways, but hear me out; specifically in the Trespasser and Film canons, there aren't as large of differences as people think (major dates being the main difference, but they are most certainly NOT mentioned in the films, and therefore, the actual dates are up for grabs). Now, the Wookieepedia (the Star Wars wiki) clearly states in it's articles that many things that don't coincide with the main timeline/canon are simply retconned. I don't see why things are so much different between the Film and Trespasser canons. Any thoughts on this?
Thanks and good to be back.
