And no doubt dinosaurs, birds, mushrooms and flowering plants share a common ancestor too, after all our basic processes of metabolism and genetics are similar. I wonder how one tests the DNA of dinosaurs.

R eKim Sterelny's post.  I think that the sequencing of certain genes in
nuclear DNA has indicated that birds are not descended directly from
dinosaurs but rather that birds and dinosaurs share a common ancestor.
