English researchers say they have sorted out what dinosaur DNA resembles.

Scientists at the University of Kent say their work reveals the hereditary mystery behind why dinosaurs came in such an assortment of shapes and sizes.

This variety helped the animals advance rapidly because of a changing situation – helping them to rule Earth for 180 million years.

Be that as it may, the scientists behind the DNA work say they have no plans to reproduce dinosaurs, Jurassic Park style.

Obviously, there was one last test the dinosaurs couldn’t defeat – a huge space rock affect 66 million years back that wiped out all dinosaur bunches with the exception of the flying ones that formed into flying creatures.

As of late, Prof Darren Griffin’s group utilized numerical methods to recognize the conceivable hereditary attributes of the simple first dinosaurs. They did this by working in reverse from their nearest current relatives – winged creatures and turtles.

Their outcomes recommend that dinosaur DNA was most likely composed into numerous lumps – called chromosomes. Winged animals more often than not have around 80 chromosomes – around three times the number people have.

It prominent that flying creatures are among the most fluctuated creature bunches on Earth. On the off chance that, as Prof Griffin considers, dinosaurs additionally had countless it may clarify why they too came in such a scope of shapes and sizes.

“We think it produces variety. Having a considerable measure of chromosomes empowers dinosaurs to rearrange their qualities around significantly more than different sorts of creatures. This rearranging implies that dinosaurs can advance all the more rapidly thus enable them to survive insofar as the planet changed,” Prof Griffin said.

Dr Rebecca O’Connor, from the University of Kent, stated: “The fossil proof and now our confirmation fortifies as opposed to flying creatures and dinosaurs being far off relatives, they are one in the same. The flying creatures around us today are dinosaurs.”

Ostrich or dinosaur?

With respect to trusts that we may be capable catch antiquated dinosaur DNA from fossils, that looks far fetched.

Hereditary material debases after some time, and the world record for the survival of old DNA is one million years. Dinosaurs lived somewhere in the range of 66 and 245 million years back.

Be that as it may, the methods being utilized by Prof Griffin and his associates may prompt a significantly more point by point comprehension of what dinosaur DNA resembled.

Be that as it may, this won’t in itself enable us to reproduce dinosaurs.

“We are not gong to have Jurassic Park at any point in the near future,” as per Prof Griffin.

“On the off chance that you take the DNA of a chicken and place it into an ostrich egg you won’t wind up with a chicken or an ostrich. You will wind up with nothing. The same would be valid for a velociraptor or a T. rex. It just wouldn’t work”.
