Yes, Dolly was confirmed as a clone. We know this because she was produced using the egg from a ewe of a different sheep strain, confirming that cloning had taken place.

Incidentally, does anyone know how Dolly came by her name ?

Yes yesI know..me me me me..I know..

...it was because prior to Dollys birth the commercial bandwagon had already mass produced toy clone sheep, and also the best selling game ' Lets Clone A Sheep '...so, inspired by the toy market they decided to call Dolly....errhm...Dolly !!

Dolly was named after Dolly Parton as the cloning was done from breast tissue

If they had thought carefully about using Dolly Partons breast tissue they could have made a very interesting sheep/camel hybrid !!

actually we've even cloned humans technically.  this was done in south korea about two years ago (almost exactly as a matter of fact)they clones a human embryo, but it was not carried to term.

Are YOUR mice nude? ;)
