DNA stain on bone

From:Miranda Jans

Dear Histonetters,

I work at the Dutch state service for archaeological heritage management, where I am currently working on archaeological bone histology. This is often very fragile material so decalcification is not always possible.  
Is it possible to stain for (fragments of) DNA on sections of undecalcified bone? Or is in situ hybridisation an option?

Thanks in advance,
