Extra Extra: Cloning!
EQ: After so many deaths, why do people still clone animals
- cloning is a process of creating an identical copy of an original
- a mature embryo is put into a fertile egg
- in order to make a clone you must transplant the nuclei from body cells into eggs that have had their nucleus removed
- In reproductive cloning, researchers remove a mature somatic cell, such as a skin cell, from an animal that they would like to copy. They then transfer the DNA of the donor animal's somatic cell into an egg cell, or oocyte, that has had its own DNA-containing nucleus removed.
- the egg is allowed to develop into an embryo in the test-tube and then is put into the womb of an adult female animal.
Answer(s) to EQ
- scientists want to advance the research that they will receive from the experiments
- some people don't care who or what is effected in the process of their lab work
