Can A Chicken Be “Reverse-Evolved” Into A Dinosaur?

September 27, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

“Renowned paleontologist Jack Horner has spent his career trying to reconstruct a dinosaur.

He’s found fossils with extraordinarily well-preserved blood vessels and soft tissues, but never intact DNA.

So, in a new approach, he’s taking living descendants of the dinosaur (chickens) and genetically engineering them to reactivate ancestral traits β€” including teeth, tails, and even hands β€” to make a “Chickenosaurus”.”
