Sense Of Individuality Organ Transplants
1,080 wordsA clone is the name given for a group of organisms or other living matter with exactly the same genetic material. Genetic material consists of genes, which are the parts of cells that determine all characteristics of living things. It is not until recently that scientists have developed an experimental process for cloning higher animals, such as humans. This is a very technical process which involves first destroying the nucleus of an egg cell from the species to be cloned. Then a nucleus is rem...

U S News Amp World Amp World Report
1,146 wordsCloning is the process of taking cells from a donor, placing them in a culture dish where the nutrients are minimal, so the cells stop dividing and switch their "active genes." The cells are then put next to an unfertilized egg. The nucleus is sucked out of the egg leaving an empty egg cell containing all the cellular machinery necessary to produce an embryo. An electric shock is used to fuse the egg and cell together. A second shock is then used to mimic the act of fertilization and help begin ...

Embryo Cloning Genetic Determinism
1,165 wordsThe news about the successful cloning of an adult sheep, in which the sheep's DNA was inserted into a fertilized sheep egg to produce a lamb with identical DNA, has generated an outpouring of ethical concerns. These concerns are not about Dolly, the first cloned mammal, nor even about the considerable impact cloning may have on the animal breeding industry. Theyre about the possibility of cloning humans. For the most part, however, the ethical concerns being raised are exaggerated and misplaced....
