Dinosaur cloning. Image 1 of 3. Computer artwork of a dinosaur being cloned from the soft tissue remains inside a fossilised bone. The fossil bone (centre) contains remains of red blood cells (magnified in the circle). In 2005, scientists discovered soft tissue that resembled cells and fine blood vessels from a 68-million-year-old fossil bone of a Tyrannosaurus rex (T rex). In theory, the genetic make-up of the dinosaur could be found from this soft tissue, however DNA is very unstable and degrades quickly. For a sequence showing dinosaur cloning, see images E446/493 - E446/495.
