Cloning Human Genetics

Can humans clone our genetics with the knowledge we know now

Is Human Cloning Possible?

Because of the science and knowledge we have now, is it possible to clone Humans, knowing that we have cloned animals in the past?


According to the article Could Humans Be Cloned, it tells us that experts say it is likely biologically possible to clone a human being, but have encountered problems that needed to be overcome with trial and error. To answer the question if we are able to use the knowledge we have now to clone a human being, the answer is 'no' says the site because the animals they used like mice and cows are not as similar to humans and because Primates are not able to make proteins in the embryo unlike other animals, it is a challenge to test on Primates. Also, most cloned animals after birth usually die, but if they survive, the usually have disinformation.

What can Human Cloning Benefit To?

The source Understanding Human Genetic Variation says that one benefit of studying human genetic variation is the discovery and description of the genetic contribution to may human diseases such as Caner, Heart Disease, Diabetes, etc and society has been willing in the past and continues to be willing to pay significant amounts of money for research in this area to help improve human health. This will also help develop medical practices but also gives us a powerful tool for understanding and describing human evolution.

What Is The DNA Chip?

DNA chip technology is a revolutionary new tool designed to identify mutations in genes or survey expression of tens of thousands of genes in one experiment. It contains synthetic single-stranded DNA sequences identical to that of the normal gene and all possible mutations of that gene. DNA microarray technology is also allowing scientists to investigate the activity in different cell types of thousands of genes at the same time, an advance that will help researchers determine the complex functional relationships that exist between individual genes says the article Understanding Human Genetic Variation.
