Re: T-Rex soft tissue?

You might be able to get proteins/ protein fragments but certainly not complete DNA. You would separate out the components and inject them into living tissue cultures to see what antibodies appear. You could then work backwards to figure out what proteins are present. Useful, but hardly a Jurassic Park cloning experiment.

Does this mean that you could extract DNA and potentially clone a dinosaur?
