Please view this as an opportunity for discussion on all topics related to dinosaur soft tissue discovery, organic remains, testing and the impact they may have on how science views (or should view) the geological and historical timeline of planet Earth and its inhabitants.
To post anything in The Community, you will need to become a site member or, as we prefer to call it, Community Member. Just click on the Login button at the top-right for desktop and top of menu for mobile, chose the Sign up with Email button (or other preference) and follow the prompts to create your new free membership. It can take up to a few days to get approval but normally it is quicker.
We ask you to please be patient while The Community initially establishes itself and while new members join in. There are only a few rules we ask all members to abide by. Considering that the topic of finding organic material in dinosaur fossils remains controversial within a highly contested, geo-political climate, we request that community members treat one anther with the highest respect particularly where disagreements on matters such as education, discovery, published results, etc. are likely to occur. Of course your posts should not contain sales promotions, offensive language or Community posts will be moderated and any infringements on policy will be dealt with in a timely manner.
We encourage you to share your knowledge, ask questions, participate in the discussions and become an integral part of this community. YOU are important because, without you, there would be no community.
Please note that if you cannot find a suitable/relevant category for your post, contact us to request a new category for review.

There are now more than 120 papers in peer-reviewed journal articles reporting soft tissues in dinosaur and other deep-time organic remains. These scientific papers* describe biological material, including tissue and DNA, remaining inside fossils.
