Metaproteomics of medieval teeth tells us about the health of ancient people!!!

Okay -- if the title of this doesn't make you want to read this (open access!) paper we probably can't be friends....

This is like Emily and Antonius's mummy study if you weren't quite as sample limited and you moved forward from an Orbitrap XL to today's fastest Orbitraps!!

They can ID the bacteria that these ancient people had been exposed and infected with -- from their teeth!!

An Encino Man gif is mandatory here, right?

(thought I could find a better one...)

MWAHAHAHAHAAA!!!! Much better one!
