Protein Evidence: T. Rex Related to Chicken
The Post article is here. An excerpt:
Unleashing a new, highly sensitive medical analyzer on fossilized bone from Tyrannosaurus rex, scientists have for the first time determined the precise molecular code of a dinosaur protein.
. . .
The first results, described in today's issue of the journal Science, show that the collagen protein in T. rex bone is extraordinarily similar to that of the modern chicken, confirming current thinking that dinosaurs' nearest cousins are birds.
Better start rethinking your chicken metaphors.
I now have much more respect for this man.
