5 of 25© Boardworks Ltd 2006 Sexual reproduction There are two main ways by which organisms can reproduce: sexual reproduction and asexual reproduction. In sexual reproduction, genes from two parent organisms are combined to produce an organism with a unique genetic code. The advantage of sexual reproduction is that it produces natural variation among a species, enabling it to adapt to environmental change. Most animals and many plants reproduce sexually.
6 of 25© Boardworks Ltd 2006 Asexual reproduction In asexual reproduction, a single organism makes a copy of itself with exactly the same genetic code. The new organism is a clone of the original. Asexual reproduction enables an organism to quickly populate a new habitat and ensures that, if it is well-adapted to its environment, successful characteristics are passed on. Organisms that reproduce asexually include: micro-organisms, such as bacteria and yeast many plants, such as spider plants, strawberries and potatoes some insects, such as aphids.
7 of 25© Boardworks Ltd 2006 Bacteria can copy themselves very quickly – their numbers can double every 20 minutes! That’s 10 times faster than the quickest animal cells. Speedy bacterial clones
8 of 25© Boardworks Ltd 2006 Human clones already exist! Identical twins have exactly the same genes and are therefore clones of each other. Human clones Identical twins are created when a fertilized egg splits in two, creating two separate but genetically-identical embryos. ++= How does the creation of identical twins differ from that of non-identical twins?

10 of 25© Boardworks Ltd 2006 Taking cuttings A plant can easily and quickly be cloned by taking a cutting. This is a fast way of cloning. stem cut from parent plant cutting dipped in rooting powder and planted The problem with this method is that it cannot produce many clones at once.
11 of 25© Boardworks Ltd 2006 Tissue culture
12 of 25© Boardworks Ltd 2006 Embryo transplantation It is more difficult to clone animals than plants. A technique used to create clone animals is embryo transplanting. For example, a cattle farmer would follow this process: 1.Sperm is taken from the best bull and used to fertilize an egg from the best cow. 2.The fertilized egg divides to form an embryo containing several cells. 3.The embryo is separated into individual cells, which go on to form new embryos. Each embryo contains the same genes. 4.The embryos are implanted into surrogate cows. 5.The cows give birth to calves, which are all clones of each other.
13 of 25© Boardworks Ltd 2006 Embryo transplants Embryo transplantation enables a farmer to produce several new animals that have the characteristics of the best bull and best cow. Before embryo transplantation takes place, the cow is given fertility drugs to increase the number of eggs she produces. How does that improve the procedure?
14 of 25© Boardworks Ltd 2006 Cloning an adult Embryo transplantation enables animals to be created that are clones of each other, but not clones of the parent. Cloning a single adult animal, especially a mammal, is much more complicated. The most famous animal clone is Dolly the sheep, who was born on 5 July Dolly was not the first animal clone, but the first mammal to be cloned from an adult cell.
15 of 25© Boardworks Ltd 2006 What is nuclear transfer? Dolly was created using a technique called nuclear transfer. The egg cell is then made to divide and develop like a normal fertilized egg. The important difference is that it only contains the DNA from one, rather than two, animals. In this technique, the nucleus (i.e. DNA) from a body cell of the adult (a somatic cell) is removed. This nucleus is then inserted into an egg cell that has had its own nucleus removed. Why couldn’t the DNA be taken from a sperm or egg cell? Because they only contain half the genes of the animal.

19 of 25© Boardworks Ltd 2006 How could you make an embryo that only contained your genes? Stem cells could be injected into damaged organs to rebuild the tissues. This would reduce the need for organ transplants. The stem cells would need to have the same genes as the patient, otherwise they would be rejected by the patient’s immune system. They would need to be clones. injected into patient with diseased liver liver is repaired stem cells Using stem cells
20 of 25© Boardworks Ltd 2006 patient’s DNA inserted stem cells removed – the embryo dies 5 day-old embryo embryo cell nucleus removed The DNA of an embryo cell can be replaced with the DNA from a patient’s cell. The embryo produces stem cells containing the patient’s genes. The cells will not be rejected, so immune-suppressing drugs are not needed. This process is therapeutic cloning.
