  • Mt-DNA from hair

    Successful extraction of Mt-DNA from hair shafts (rather than hair roots) and the prospects for extraction from other keratinous samples such as finger nails etc.

    Mammoth hair full of DNA

    Yes,I read that story everywhere on the net,at msn-science,yahoo-science. That mammoth hair yielded DNA in perfect condition -even good enough to clone from. The article said that DNA from bone absorbed water and air and dirt which made it hard to extract the good DNA out. But hair had something like a plastic coating on it and the hair did not absorb dirt and decay ,so the DNA from the hair shaft is in really Great condition. This is not news to me -I always thought that the hair shaft,not just the root had DNA in it-it even looks like a strand of DNA to me,but I'm just a girl and what do I know ?

    Many scientists and the ones at the Uni of Penn thought that hair was dead,so they didn't suspect DNA was in it.That's what the article at msn.com,news,science said.
