Human Cloning Stem Cells
789 wordsSince I am majored in biology, I will mainly talk about the topic of human cloning today. Four billion years ago, life arose on the earth. Four billion years later, human beings begin to look into the secrets hidden in the genes, which are the most delicate structure of life.

Ethical Implications Of Human Cloning
1,549 wordsCloning has been going on in the natural world for thousands of years. A clone is simply one living thing made from another, leading to two organisms with the same set of genes.

When earthworms are cut in half, they regenerate the missing parts of their bodies, leading to two worms with the same set of genes. Any...
