quote:Originally posted by DoctorBeaverMichael - females would also be redundant. To clone something you need only 1 cell containing its DNA. That could be a blood cell, skin cell, hair cell or whatever; zygotes become unnecessary completely. There is, obviously, much complexity involved; but basically it's a case of get a cell, extract the DNA, do clever things with it & let mitosis do the rest. Then hey presto you have an exact copy of the original.
quote:Originally posted by DoctorBeaverI have mixed views on the subject & cannot, no matter how long & hard I consider it, come to any firm conclusions either way. I'm very cynical about people's motives & desire for power/wealth, so my head says we should jump on it from a great height & ensure it never again raises its ugly head. Another part of me, however, looks at the alleged benefits of cloning for stem cell harvesting & says "Yeah, it's great".
