Wilmut And Dr Unicellular Organisms
1,428 wordsThe biological definition of a clone is an organism that has the same genetic information as another organism or organisms ("Cloning", 1997). From this definition and from information about the science behind cloning, my current view on cloning is that it is ethical. This statement ignores information about how we can misuse cloning and what consequences occur when the procedure is unsuccessful. I currently do not think cloning should be used until it is perfected. I doubt however that we will a...

Somatic Cell Nuclear Transfer Vitro Fertilization
781 wordsCloning and the United States Government On February 24, 1997 Roslin Institute in Edinburgh, Scotland announced that scientists had cloned an adult mammal for the first time. These researchers removed a nucleus from a mammary gland of a sheep and implanted the nucleus into a sheep's egg with the egg's nucleus already removed. This embryo was then inserted into a surrogate sheep's uterus. This procedure is called somatic cell nuclear transfer cloning. This process could have a great impact in med...

This was the day of fusion date for Dolly, which is the natural equivalent to a conception date. An interesting note is that three different sheep were involved in producing Dolly, versus the usual two or one (in-vitro fertilization). Furthermore, the Roslin scientists used three different breeds for each sheep to prove tha...

Process Of Cloning Human Cloning
1,144 wordsShould cloning for human benefits or even human cloning itself be allowed in society today? That is a question we must ask ourselves. Less than two years ago, an event in genetic history changed the worlds perspective on "Reproduction" and added to the worlds conscience a new element to the study of Biology. This event immediately caught my interest and intrigued me. It was the birth of a unique sheep named Dolly. Dolly was a clone sheep born on February 12 th 1997 and this sheep doesnt have a f...

Genetically Identical Ethical Questions
583 wordsCloning is producing a genetically identical organism to its parent. Since 1997, there have been many examples of cloning. Two examples are of Dolly the sheep and Tetra the monkey. These two clones are examples of different techniques used for cloning. And because of the previous two examples of cloning many ethical questions have been raised. In 1997, Scottish scientist Ian Wilmut and his workers produced a sheep named Dolly. What was so great about Dolly? Dolly was a clone. She was made from a...

The embryo can then be put back into the womb of the women who donated the nucleus then she can have a healthy child who is biologically related to her (Uses of Cloning 2). Another practical application of human cloning could be used as insurance for a person or his children's health. Humans might be able to clone their own organs ...

1,355 wordsThe issue of Cloning Cloning The issue of cloning has always been around in our everyday lives. Cloning was common in movies such a as Jurassic Park and The Lost World, where cloning seemed to be an idea of fantasy and not reality. The idea that scientist could just take a little DNA from a dead mosquito and turn it into something that could tower over a skyscraper was very intriguing to most people. On the other hand, there were movies such as Alien Resurrection, in which cloning was necessary ...

Wilmut And Dr Unicellular Organisms
2,092 wordsThe biological definition of a clone is an organism that has the same genetic information as another organism or organisms. Thus, an elaboration on the history, techniques, ethics, and reasons for researching the technology of cloning is necessary. A clone is an organism derived asexually from a single individual by cuttings, bulbs, tubers, fission, or parthenogenesis reproduction. Parthenogenesis reproduction is the development of an organism from an unfertilized ovum, seed or spore. Hence, clo...

2,049 wordsThe first thing that must be cleared up is what is cloning, and what is a clone. A clone is an organism derived asexually from a single individual by cuttings, bulbs, tubers, fission, or parthenogenesis reproduction (" Cloning" , 1997). Pathogenesis reproduction is the development of an organism from an unfertilized ovum, seed or spore (" Pathogenesis" , 1997). So cloning, biologically speaking, is any process in which production of a clone is successful. Therefore, the biolo...

As we progressed one step closer to successfully cloning and developing a human being, legislators and the general public have become more concerned about the ethical and moral implications of this procedure. The federal government has been unsuccessful in reaching an agreement as to what policy to pass and enact. Thus, any current legislation on human cloning has been developed and enforced by individual states. The state of California is one of ...

787 words65279; The cloning of animals will be beneficial to human beings inthe near future. Experiments in cloning animals started in the early nine-teen-fifties. Over the next forty years, scientists were only able to clone animals from very young embryonic cells. When these scientists tried to use older cells for cloning, threadid not get normal results. This led many scientists to believe that animals could not be cloned from adult cells. (Pennisi, 1997) However, this all changed in the Summer of ...

1,939 wordsAccording to Webster s New World Dictionary (1990), a clone is all descendants derived asexually from a single organism. In layman terms a clone is an exact duplicate of another organism, therefore a human clone would be a perfect copy of another human being. According to the American Medical Association, the scientific name for cloning is somatic cell nuclear transfer, which means the nucleus of an existing organism is transferred into an oocyte from which the nucleus has been removed (AMA 1998...

Everyone has a different point of view on whether or not the ban is justified. Some experts believe that this ban is in the common good for the nation while others believe that banning such important research would be a travesty in the eyes of scientists.

By Philip Cohen Dolly the sheep does not have precisely the same genetic make-up as the adult sheep from which she was cloned. A study shows that the genes in her mitochondria the powerhouses of cells came from another sheep involved in the experiment. The result leaves scientists wondering: exactly how similar are Dolly and her genetic twin? In a cloning technique called nuclear transfer, a donor cell is fused w...
