Collagen analysis is tracing the evolutionary tree of ancient marine turtles, providing powerful proof of concept for future taxonomic investigations
Matthew Hallam | | Quick Read
Several features of collagen make it an ideal candidate for the taxonomic investigation of archeological bone. Namely, it is abundant, resilient and it harbors species-specific chemical traits. Thus, “collagen fingerprinting” — a technique that extracts chemical signatures using MS — complements morphological examination and DNA sequencing in the acquisition of species identity in ancient bone.
