520    In movies, in novels, in comic strips, and on television, 
       we've all seen dinosaurs-or at least somebody's educated 
       guess of what they would look like. But what if it were 
       possible to build, or grow, a real dinosaur without 
       finding ancient DNA? Jack Horner, the scientist who 
       advised Steven Spielberg on the blockbuster film Jurassic 
       Park and a pioneer in bringing paleontology into the 
       twenty-first century, teams up with the editor of the New 
       York Times's Science Times section to reveal exactly 
       what's in store.In the 1980s, Horner began using CAT scans
       to look inside fossilized dinosaur eggs, and he and his 
       colleagues have been delving deeper ever since. At North 
       Carolina State University, Mary Schweitzer has extracted 
       fossil molecules-proteins that survived 68 million years-
       from a Tyrannosaurus rex fossil excavated by Horner. These
       proteins show that T. rex and the modern chicken are 
       kissing cousins. At McGill University, Hans Larsson is 
       manipulating a chicken embryo to awaken the dinosaur 
       within-starting by getting it to grow a tail and 
       eventually prompting it to grow the forelimbs of a 
       dinosaur. All of this is happening without changing a 
       single gene.This incredible research is leading to 
       discoveries and applications so profound they're scary in 
       the power they confer on humanity. How to Build a Dinosaur
       is a tour of the hot rocky deserts and air-conditioned 
       laboratories at the forefront of this scientific 
       revolution.
