Subject: Mummy

Ref: this discussion, a very interesting series started on TV (in
UK) last night regarding DNA testing on Pharaohs. This has been
successfully done but how would fumigation affect DNA testing? I
realise your mummy may not be from an important family but in
decades to come DNA testing could become a simple routine but only
if the residual genetic material has not been damaged.

I did not get the name of the researcher but he is based at Brigham
Young University.

Worth watching this series when it hits your screen.
