    This was originally proposed in 2009 in Horner's book "how to build a dinosaur".

    I suspect it will be a little more complex than switching on a few dormant genes... but I still really want to see this research carried out, if for no other reason than to better understand gene interactions.

    Plus, I want a dino-chicken. :cool:

    I am an MSU Bozeman alumni, and proud to have him at the university. The Museum of the Rockies is a great place to visit if you're ever in this part of the country.
