Cloning is accomplished by removing the DNA from the cell of an adult animal and implanting it in an egg cell of a similar animal. This allows for a mirror duplicate of the original animal to be created and gestated inside another creature.


Cloning can be done by a variety of methods including natural methods such as asexual reproduction and artificial methods by cloning genes, cells or entire organisms. When a biological entity is cloned, a genetically identical copy of it is produced.


Plants are cloned by taking a cutting from one plant and replanting the cutting in damp soil or compost. A cutting is a section of plant, generally a stem or branch, that is removed from the original plant for use as a clone, according to the BCC.


The first idea for cloning came about in 1938 when Hans Spermann suggested an experiment where one would replace the nucleus of an egg with another cell and grow a new specimen from that. Cloning has now moved on from frogs and rabbits to sheep and dogs.


There are three types of cloning that are mainly used: reproductive, therapeutic and DNA. Cloning is the process of producing a genetically identical organisms that exists in nature.


Dangers associated with cloning include a chance of developmental issues arising later in life, a low success rate, which necessitates time-consuming and cost-intensive repeat cloning attempts, gene abnormalities and differences in chromosome lengths and patterns. Cloni...


It is possible to clone a hard drive with backup utility software that copies the contents of a hard drive to another hard drive. The process can take minutes or hours, depending on how much data is on the original drive.
