Cloning became to be, as a Finn Dorset ewe would provide the mammary cell for the cloning process. Secondly the mammary cell containing all copies of every gene that is needed to make the sheep. Although the only genes for proteins that are required by mammary cells are active. Thirdly the cells grow and then they are divided, by making carbon copies of themselves. But if the cells are starved of there nutrients, they will soon enter a quiescent state. When it gets to this point all of their genes are most likely already activated. In the fourth stage there is an egg from a Scottish Blackface ewe that provides the egg. Then in the fifth stage the egg or oocyte, is being kept alive in a laboratory dish. Sixth, the nucleus is taken from the egg. Seventhly, the mammary cell and the egg are fused with a bolt of electricity. The molecules that are in the egg then begin to program the genes in the mammary cell to produce the lamb embryo. Then in the eight stage the clusters of the embryonic cells are finished processing. In the ninth stage the embryos are inserted into the surrogate mother. Finally the tenth stage where the lamb is a result of a clone of the donor ewe. That lamb was Dolly. Dolly was the first mammal cloned from a cell from an adult animal
This all relates to Chemistry because Chemistry involves finding cures, doing experiments, and combining chemicals. The way scientists started doing cloning was through Chemistry by experimenting with different chemicals to get the right reaction.
One reason people have given for the invention of cloning is to make spare parts in the future. Once an embryo has been twinned, one embryo can be implanted and allowed to develop into a baby, while the other is frozen. If the child later develops an illness such as leukemia, then the frozen twin could be thawed and implanted into a surrogate mother, to be culled for spare parts after a few months' gestation. It is also believed that the technique could be adapted to grow human organs such as hearts, kidneys, liver and pancreases in an embryonic sac living in an artificial womb. This means you could clone your dead father. This could be done so long as living cells have been kept in culture, taken from before death, or have been frozen in an appropriate manner.
This all affects today's world. Time-warp twins have already been born - non-identical twins conceived in the laboratory on the same day, but implanted 18 months apart. Geep have already been born - half sheep and half goat - and camels and lamas have also been combined to make camas. Cloning has always caught the public imagination. We now have the technology to take a few cells from a modern day Einstein, or a musical genius or a child prodigy and to create hundreds of babies that have exactly the same genes. Of course, as identical twins, clones will have individual differences, separate identities - separate souls.
As far as future plans, genes from humans are already working in fish, rabbits, mice, pigs, sheep and cows. Some of these humanized pigs may be providers of heart transplants in the future.
It is predicted headless human clones will be used to grow organs and tissues for transplant surgery in the next 5-10 years. It is also predicted there will be great pressure to combine cloning technology with the creation of partial foetuses, missing heads, arms or legs, as organ factories for tomorrow's people.
For this reason President Clinton imposed a five-year ban on human cloning research funded by federal government dollars. Even without legislation, the Food and Drug Administration has said that it would shut down anyone who tries human cloning. Federal regulations require that scientists seek approval before attempting cloning, and the FDA has indicated that it is highly unlikely they would grant such a request.

Jurassic ParkJurassic Park Jurassic Park takes place on an Island off the Coast of Costa Rica which is owned by a multimillionaire, John Hammond. On this island he has set up a genetical engineering facility which permits him and his scientist to create dinosaur from blood extracted from prehistoric mosquitos, that have been preserved in amber. Before he opens this living attraction to the public he needs specialist to approve the park. He brings them to the island and begins to show them what he has accompl

In Vitro FertilizationIn Vitro Fertilization The unexamined life is not worth living. With these words, Socrates stated the creed of reflective men and women and set the task for ethics: to seek, with the help of reason, a consistent and defensible approach to life and its moral dilemmas (Walters 22). Ethical inquiry is important to us when we are unsure of the direction in which we are heading. New philosophy calls all in doubt, wrote John Donne in the wake of the Copernican Revolution and of Charles Iís violent
CloningCloning Twenty years ago, scientists said that cloning was completely impossible. But now, the science of cloning has come to realization. Imagine meeting an exact replica of somebody. They look alike, think alike, and even have the same genetic makeup. No, this isn\'t an episode of Star Trek, this is reality. This is the new world of cloning, and thanks to a 7-month-old sheep named Dolly, a new science has been born. As with every new science, there are those who believe in it, and those who op
Cloning: How far will it go?Cloning: How far will it go? Everyday people find themselves at a crossroads that requires a decision as to which path to follow. In the past few years, scientists have gained knowledge about cloning that could impact our lives for centuries to come. As a society we are at a crossroads and we will have to decide how to use this knowledge. Will we choose to increase our power over nature or will we develop a partnership? There are many benefits of cloning, but do they outweigh the possibility of

The very idea that cloning could one day become reality was thought to be a scientific impossibility by many experts but on one exhilarating day, what was thought to be purely fiction became reality. That fine day was February 22, 1997. A team from the Roslin Institute which was lead by Dr. Ian Wilmut changed the face of history forever by revealing what looked like an average sheep. T
Brian RowanBrian Rowan Writing II 21 February 2001 CLONINGCloning has been a very controversial issue in the United States over the past few years. There are two different sides, either one is for the process of cloning or theyíre not. Itís that simple. Strictly speaking, a clone refers to one or more offspring derived from a single ancestor, whose genetic composition is identical to that of the ancestor. No sex is involved in the production of clones, and since sex is the normal means by which new geneti
Human Cloning: The Ethical IssuesHuman Cloning: The Ethical Issues Ever since the successful cloning of an adult sheep, world has been buzzing about the historical event. Dolly the sheep has redefined the meaning of the words identical twin. Not only does she look like her mother, she has the same genetic makeup as her. This experiment was not only was thought of as impossible, but unthinkable. It was achieved in July 1996 by Dr. Ian Wilmut of the Roslin Institute in Roslin, Scotland. Dolly was announced to the public when she

VATICAN CITY -- A Vatican panel issued a stingingVATICAN CITY -- A Vatican panel issued a stinging condemnation of human cloning Tuesday and warned against the misuse of genetic information. Human cloning, it said, represents a grave attack on the dignity of conception and on the right to an unrepeatable, unpredetermined set of genes. The Pontifical Academy on Life also warned that using genetic information to suppress malformed or diseased embryos and fetuses amounts to a new form of selective eugenics. The statement came at the end of the ac
Cloning is Ethically and Morally WrongCloning is Ethically and Morally Wrong The question shakes us all to our very souls. For humans to consider the cloning of one another forces them all to question the very concepts of right and wrong that make them all human. The cloning of any species, whether they be human or non-human, is ethically and morally wrong. Scientists and ethicists alike have debated the implications of human and non-human cloning extensively since 1997 when scientists at the Roslin Institute in Scotland produced Do
To Clone Or Not To CloneTo Clone Or Not To Clone Cloning is an issue that has been evolving during time. At the begining, cloning was been researched and was described as something that was hard to reach. Even science fiction movies, such as Multiplicity, were produced about cloning. As the time went through, cloning became a reality. In 1996 Dolly, the first mammal, a sheep was born. Dolly was created by Ian Wilmut, an embryologist of the Rosling insitute ( World Book, http://www.worldbook.com ). Since then, many mamm
As our technology continues to advance, new breaktAs our technology continues to advance, new breakthroughs in medicine are discovered. With these new developments serious ethical and moral questions arise. Advancements in genetic engineering, reproductive technologies, cloning, organ transplanting, and human experimentation are all causes of concern. The Human Genome Project, an incredible scientific undertaking determined to produce a map of the human DNA code, will tell us how each gene or group of genes function (Lemonick and Thompson 44).
