Soil samples retrieved from the caves have revealed intriguing traces of DNA from mosses, algae and small animals.[...]Dr Fraser said that most of the DNA resembles that found in plants and animals from the rest of Antarctica. But that some sequences couldn't be fully identified. [...] "The next steps will be to take a closer look at the caves and search for living organisms. If they exist, it opens the door to an exciting new world," she explained.

 

Well well well...

Arctic but not Antarctic - but I thought the first season of Fortitude used this idea quite well to run an investigative/horror tale.
