More on DNA analysis of parchment

There is a report on an attempt to extract DNA from manuscripts "with the long-term goal of creating a genetic database that can be used to determine when and where a manuscript was written" (here). I seem to recall a Cambridge based project attempting something similar a few years ago which I thought had been discussed here on ETC, but I couldn't find any reference to it via the Blogger search.
