Introduction to Peptide Mass Fingerprinting Process - Child’s Boots [25-5-10/98129]

The objective of this NCPTT/NPS project is to identify collagen-based materials used to fabricate objects of cultural heritage through application of a biotechnology technique. The current work, which began in November 2013, originally developed from a prior inquiry into Alaskan Native skin-covered kayaks and provides an opportunity to focus on objects originating from Alaskan Native group for which there are standing questions.
