The Science of Cloning
October 20, 2011 Leave a comment
LiveScience has a good FAQ article on the basics of how animals are cloned. Cloning is only going to get more prominent in the future, so it wouldn’t hurt to have an idea of what it is and how it’s done. I won’t summarize it here, since it’s already explained briefly and nicely. The last paragraph mentions the recent successful cloning of a human embryo for harvesting embryonic stem cells, which I discussed a while ago along with some background on stem cells.
As always, feel free to let me know if you’d like any aspect explained in more detail.
