Cloning in biology is the process of producing similar populations of genetically identical individuals Organism cloning refers to the procedure of creating a new multicellular organism, genetically identical to another. In essence this form of cloning is an asexual method of reproduction, where fertilization or inter-gamete contact does not take place
Genetics and Cloning
Genetics deals with the molecular structure and function of genes, gene behavior in context of a cell or organism patterns of inheritance from parent to offspring, and gene distribution, variation and change in populations. Given that genes are universal to living organisms, genetics can be applied to the study of all living systems, from viruses and bacteria, through plants and domestic animals, to humans.
Dolly, the first cloned mammal
Cloning, a part of genetics, has caused a lot of contorversy in recent times, mostly about human cloning, either for reproduction or for stem cell harvesting. In this glog, we attempt to elucidate the common man about this topic.
