Well I’m sure everybody has seen this sensationalist headline in the last week, instead of tackling the controversy myself, I’ve decided to list a few posts by bloggers who have already posted on the topic:
PZ Meyers of Pharyngula posts Stone soup; or, extracting protein fragments from T. rex bones
Brian Switek of Laelaps in his post, And the T. rex goes… cock-a-doodle-do?
Mike Ryan of Palaeoblog posts T. rex Protein Sequenced
And the original article:
Analyses of soft tissue from Tyrannosaurus rex suggest the presence of protein. 2007. Science 316: 277 - 280
