    The dust will contain some DNA, but probably it will mostly be broken down in single nucleotides, reacted products and lighter molecules at that stage. DNA doesn't last very long unless the conditions are right.

    Contained within a living cell. Or, failing that, within a cell frozen in growth medium supplemented with DMSO. Why do you want to know?

    No, there would be no living human cells present at such an advanced point in the decay of a body.

    So that means it would be very unlikely to be found some intact DNA...
