Multi-millennial seed resurrection
The always cool Genetic Archaeology blog has a nifty article on a team of researchers that have managed to get some 2000 year old dates to germinate and produce a tree.  The dates were excavated from the Masada which as built 2044 years ago, and carbon dating of other seeds confirmed their age.  Not quite Jurassic Park, but it could be beginning of a new attraction…  The Biblical Garden.
