“BOOT CAMP”:

CLONING

Day 3

WHAT IS CLONING?????


Cloning is the creation of an organism
that is an exact genetic copy of another.


This means that every single bit of DNA
is the same between the two!



ARTIFICIAL EMBRYO TWINNING



Mimics natural identical twins










See the animation to find the process used.

SOMATIC CELL NUCLEAR

Uses somatic cells (any cell in the body other than
the reproductive cells)


Involves
enucleation

(removing the nucleus from
an egg cell)


This is how Dolly the sheep was cloned in 1997
