So our yeast made yet another list for the end of the year, in fact this one was for the end of the decade!
In a list with the top five archaeological moments of the decade (“From beer to NASA: The top 5 archaeological moments of the decade“) our discovery of ancient yeast is listed!
More importantly, my now iconic quip was quoted:
“In Jurassic Park, the dinosaurs eat the scientists,” he said. “Here, the scientists drink the dinosaurs,” said Aren Maeir, an archaeologist from Bar-Ilan University.
And if I may note, I had nothing to do with choosing this, or any of the other four “moments” for the list! I’m just passing it on…:-)
