what is cloning?

Cloning is when you create an exact copy of a biological unit using a dna sequence with cells or organisms. There are also two types of cloning, artificial and natural cloning. Natural cloning is when a asexual plant or animal with neutral gender reproduce with themselves. Sort of like star fish. One example of artificial cloning is when they produce the same genes over over again. This is called gene cloning. Another example of artificial cloning is when they reproduce WHOLE animals. This is called reproductive cloning. Did you know that another word for gene cloning? Well, its also know as DNA cloning. Crazy right?
