The instability of the twenty amino acids which are the building blocks of proteins provides a possible means for determining the ages of fossils.

The other two ("non-standard" or "non-canonical") are selenocysteine (present in many noneukaryotes as well as most eukaryotes, but not coded directly by DNA), and pyrrolysine (found only in some archea and one bacterium).

Pyrrolysine and selenocysteine are encoded via variant codons; for example, selenocysteine is encoded by stop codon and SECIS element.

Jeffrey Bada of Scripps Institute of Oceanography announced the "discovery" of a new dating method based on the rate of racemization of amino acids in fossil material.

He was quoted as saying that he had discovered the basis of the method in 1968, and that it was so obvious and simple he was amazed it hadn't been discovered earlier.

Yaklaşık 14 milyon yıl önce Ponginae veya orangutanlar Hominidae ailesinden ayrılmıştır.

Goril ve şempanze ata formlarının da Homo cinsine giden soy hattından 5-6 milyon yıl önce ayrıldığı düşünülmektedir.

Genetik araştırmalar ve fosil kayıtlar ışığında, insanın da üyesi olduğu Primat takımının evrim sürecinde günümüzden yaklaşık 65-55 milyon yıl arasında Paleosen dönemde ortaya çıktığı tespit edilmiştir.

Hominidae ailesi veya büyük insansı maymunlar, 15-20 milyon yıl önce Miyosen dönemde Hylobatidae (Gibongiller) ailesinden ayrılmıştır.

As a matter of fact, the basis of this method had been discovered earlier and had been reported in a series of papers published by Hare, Mitterer and Abelson in 1967, 1968, and 1969.
