holy dinosaur bones batman!

Wow. Michael Crichton might have been right. Apparently you can find soft tissue in 70-million year old dinosaur bones! Kind of a scary thought, especially considering where the tissue was found... (Link)

Funny this is, and I read this story on the Beeb, the lab working on that sample, has no expertise on extract and analyzing DNA data.

I understand that the expectation of obtaining DNA is miniscule, but you would at least expect a bunch of DNA hot-shots to be running after that sample.
