"Study Identifies Dinosaur Protein"

From The New York Times, "Study Identifies Dinosaur Protein"

In a retrieval once thought unattainable, scientists have recovered and identified proteins in a bone of a well-preserved Tyrannosaurus rex that lived and died and was fossilized 68 million years ago. ... The earliest previously identified ancient proteins were from mammoths that died about 300,000 years ago.
