This is an informative paper on cloning including the pros, cons, and history of it
Did you ever wish that you had a clone of yourself to help you get things done?
Well it is not an idea as far fetched as one might think. Scientists have been working on
this theory for over a hundred years. Believe it or not human clones are among us today,
an identical twin is considered to be a natural clone. Cloning is the creation of an
organism that is an exact genetic copy of another. Even though cloning sounds like the
perfect solution to some of life's hardest problems it is heavily debated on in today's
society. Mainly between those who would argue that the techniclogical advances
outweigh the social consequences and vise versa.
There are three differenets types of cloning procedures. The first kind is
recombinant DNA, DNA cloning. In DNA cloning the transfer of a DNA fragment of
intrest from one organism to a self replicatinggenetic element such as bacterial plasmid.
There is also reproductive cloning which is a technology used to generate an animal that
has the same nuclear DNA as another currently or previously existing animal. This type
of cloning is what was used in the creation of Dolly, a sheep who lived to be six years
old. The third and final way of cloning is therapeutic cloning also known as embryo
cloning. Therapeutic cloning is the production of human embryos for use in research,
mainly in the use of stem cell research.
There are many controversies surrounding the idea of cloning people, animals,
and even stem cells. Those who are for it argue that the technolgy aspect is more vital
than the moral outlook. With cloning different types of cells scientists believe that it will
give them a better comprehension of genetics and could eventually help cure fatal
diseases that we are faced...
