  • Human Clone
    813 words
    Another Chance of Life Can there be another you? The answer is no, but by human cloning you can reproduce an offspring that grows into an exact genetically double of you. All of us want to prolong the lives of our loved ones and have a healthy newborn baby. Many infertility couples wanted to have a baby that is genetically theirs, not from adopting a child from a different family background. In the cloning technology, eggs or sperms would not be needed to be conceived by a person because any cel...
  • Clone An Embryo
    712 words
    In recent years, the issue of cloning has been up for debate worldwide. Cloning is the production of one or more individual plants or animals that are genetically identical to another plant or animal. There are two different types of cloning procedures, embryo cloning and adult DNA cloning. Embryo cloning occurs when sperm and egg cells are mixed in a glass dish. After conception, the zygote (fertilized egg) is allowed to divide and nutrients are added to promote cell division. The cells then fu...

    CLONING Introduction: What is Cloning Cloning is the production of an exact genetic duplicate of a living organism. Clones are created from an unfertilized egg and a donor cell. Two different procedures have been referred to as "cloning": Embryo cloning involves removing one or more cells from an embryo and encouraging the cell to develop into a separate embryo with the same DNA as the original. Adult DNA cloning involves removing the DNA from an embryo and replacing it with the DNA from another...

  • Clones Of Cells Inside An Organism
    2,761 words
    Genetic Engineering: Cloning Genetic Engineering is defined as the scientific alteration of the structure of genetic material in a living organism, which involves the production and use of recombinant DNA. A clone is a group of genetically identical cells. For example, tumors are clones of cells inside an organism because they consist of many replicas of one mutated cell. Another type of clone occurs inside a cell. Such a clone is made up of groups of identical structures that contain genetic ma...
  • Successful Cloning Of Human Embryos
    826 words
    Abstract from: Cloning: Where Do We Draw the Line? The first attempt in cloning was conducted in 1952 on a group of frogs. The experiment was a partial success. The frog cells were cloned into other living frogs however, only one in every thousand developed normally, all of which were sterile. The rest of the frogs that survived grew to abnormally large sizes. In 1993, scientist and director of the in vito lab at George Washington University, Jerry Hall and associate Robert Stillman, reported th...
  • Cloning Of Humans
    2,254 words
    Cloning For many years, the cloning of adults, animals or humans has been mostly the object of science fiction, something unforeseen by man. However, "The world was shocked in February of 1997 when British scientist, named Ian Wilmot announced that his research team successfully cloned lamb named dolly from an adult sheep at the Roselyn Institute in Scotland". (1) For what seemed like a dream for many years quickly turned into reality. The newest and possibly the most controversial phenomena in ...
  • Very High Abnormality Rate For The Clone
    391 words
    I bet many of you have seen Star Wars, Jurassic Park, Multiplicity, or many of the other movies that describe cloning. Most of what you see in these movies is false. What you don't know is that cloning could be dangerous, to the clone and to our society as a whole. It's unethical to have a human clone. What about identity? Humans are guaranteed the right to their own personality. What would happen if we overrode those rights by giving them someone else's genetic identity? True, personality is no...
  • Cloned Embryo
    567 words
    The discovery of cloning can be both beneficial and harmful to society. There are many reasonable methods of cloning. For instance, the use of cloning for medical purposes can be helpful in taking human DNA and creating new body parts. Because of the shortage of donors, this could become a valuable asset to our society. Cloning of human body parts can also be harmful if it gets into the wrong hands. Cloning should be controlled by the government to the extent there is no possible way it will be ...

  • More Questionable Use Of Cloned Embryos
    2,171 words
    The idea that humans might someday be cloned has started sounding less like a science fiction novel and more like a genuine scientific possibility. On February 23, 1997, The Observer broke the news that Ian Wilmot, a Scottish scientist, and his colleges at the Roslin Institute were about to an ounce the successful cloning of a sheep by a new technique which had never been successfully used before in mammals. This technique involved transplanting the genetic material of an adult sheep, obtained f...
  • Cloning Of Mammals From Body Cells
    1,934 words
    The process of cloning is the process of using the genes of a being to create another being genetically identical to it. Cloning technology has been called the "forbidden fruit of biology" (Begley 54). For years, scientists have been trying to perfect the cloning technique. In Scotland, scientists at the Roslin Institute have finally succeeded. Their success comes in the form of a Finn Dorset ewe named Dolly. Dolly is a clone. Now that the cloning of mammals from body cells has been accomplished...
  • Cloned Embryo
    891 words
    Biological Aspects True human cloning involves taking a somatic cell from a person and removing its nucleus. Then the nucleus of a fertilized egg cell is removed and placed in the somatic cell. This is impossible in humans right now because the somatic cells are specialized and there are many genes that have been switched off in them that we do not know how to turn them back on. This was done with frogs however. The eggs were implanted with the nuclei from the intestinal lining of tadpoles. Most...
  • Clones For Organ

    Eugenics. The word strikes fear in the hearts of many. Visions of Aldous Huxley's Brave New World, along with memories of Nazi experimentation and the Lynchburg sterilization colonies in the United States, cause many to dismiss the idea of cloning immediately. However, in reality, cloning has nothing to do with eugenics or genetic engineering. Cloning is the duplication of genetic material without any alteration. Germ line therapy, however, involves changing the material for a specific purpose. ...

    Can we and should we clone humans? Cloning humans has recently become a possibility that seems much more feasible in today's society than it was twenty years ago. It is a method that involves the production of a group of identical cells or organisms that all derive from a single individual (Grolier 220). It is not known when or how cloning humans really became a possibility, but it is known that there are two possible ways that we can clone humans. The first way involves splitting an embryo into...
  • Reproductive Cloning Technology

    Human Cloning The possibility of human cloning was raised when Scottish scientists, led by Dr. Ian Wilmut at the Roslin Institute, created the much-celebrated sheep "Dolly". Being the first mammal ever cloned this aroused worldwide interest and concern because of its scientific and ethical implications. The feat, cited by "Science Magazine" as the "breakthrough of 1997", also generated uncertainty over the meaning of "cloning" -- an umbrella term traditionally used by scientists to describe diff...
