DOLLY – the cloned sheep 0- Dolly (5 July 1996 – 14 February 2003) was a female domestic sheep, and the first mammal to be cloned from an adult somatic cell, using the process of nuclear transfer. She was cloned by Ian Wilmut, Keith Campbell and colleagues at the Roslin Institute near Edinburgh in Scotland. She was born on 5 July 1996 and she lived until the age of six. She has been called "the world's most famous sheep".
The first human clone was created in November 1998 by American Cell Technologies. It was created from a man's leg cell and a cow's egg whose DNA was removed. It was destroyed after 12 days. While making an embryo, which may have resulted in a complete human had it been allowed to come to term according to ACT: "[ACT's] aim was 'therapeutic cloning' not 'reproductive cloning'" Human cloning
Cloning and the church The act prohibits people from knowingly attempting to perform human cloning or participating in such a procedure by shipping or receiving an embryo produced from human cloning, whether the cloned embryo is to be used for reproduction or research.
Cloning in transplantology Stem cell technology hides many of life's secrets; in scientific terms its application seems boundless. Research in the field of cellular technologies can lead to a new understanding of the development and differentiation of cells: their ability to transform into various types of cells and fabrics. In case of illness or wound stem cells can be used to restore or replace damaged fabric."
Cloning gone wrong The technology is still at early stages and currently one of three cloned animals is born abnormally large or with other developmental problems.
