WHAT IS CLONING????? Cloning is the creation of an organism that is an exact genetic copy of another. This means that every single bit of DNA is the same between the two!
ARTIFICIAL EMBRYO TWINNING Mimics natural identical twins See the animation to find the process used. http://learn.genetics.utah.edu/content/tech/cloning/whatis cloning/ http://learn.genetics.utah.edu/content/tech/cloning/whatis cloning/
SOMATIC CELL NUCLEAR TRANSFER: Uses somatic cells (any cell in the body other than the reproductive cells) Involves enucleation (removing the nucleus from an egg cell) This is how Dolly the sheep was cloned in 1997 http://learn.genetics.utah.edu/content/tech/cloning/clickandclone/
