Only one person will be reproducing. Do you think that in 20--50 years, whatever, cloning will be offered in a fertility clinic for a small number of patients? The social situation would make the mother treat the child as a daughter. Other doctors don't do that. Scientists have not been able to clone monkeys. Human cloning is a blunt form of eugenics-it "copies" an existing genome-while inheritable genetic modification allows the creation of "designer babies" through manipulation of individual genes.
To be honest, sex will always be part of behavior as long as there's males and females, so I'm not too worried about that. Cloned animals age faster than normal, original animals.
They then transfer the DNA of the donor animal's somatic cell into an egg cell, or oocyte, that has had its own DNA-containing nucleus removed. My gut feeling is when there's a challenge, and you put it in front of people like us, someone will always take that challenge and take it to the next step. But, the child they're having will be the child of their parents. It's a genetic dead end. Natural Cloning Cloning for Kids occurs naturally in some cases. Scientists were very excited because fresh blood cells may contain DNA, or genetic information about the mammoth.
Dolly the Sheep Scientists have been able to clone other kinds of animals, like goats, rats, dogs, and horses, but sometimes these animals have been born with health problems. The first mouse to be cloned was a house mouse via an embryo cell in 1986 in the Soviet Union.
Cloning for Kids Against Reproductive Cloning 1. A clone will be no different than children who are already born today. And many times, they're going to be disappointed.
This copy would be called a clone. In fact, the argument has been made by geneticists, that the parents of the clone are not going to be the infertile couple.
But cloning may be useful in making new cells in people who are sick or injured. The process started with 277 eggs, and Dolly was the single successful outcome. Which creates embryonic Stem Cells.
Animal cloning is seldom successful, and many scientists believe that reproductive cloning can never be made safe.
Artificial cloning is done by scientists and involves taking a gene from one organism and inserting it into the genetic material of another carrier organism.
I mean, there's no question that that's not where our heads are at right now.
