Cloning animals
Nucleus removed from egg and new nucleus added from mother, cell develops into embryo.
Asexual reproduction
Reproduction when there is no fusion of sex cells and genetic information. Cloning is an example of this.
Shortage of organ for transplants
A problem cloning could solve.
Reduced gene pool
This means there are fewer different alleles in a population. This could be a problem with cloning.
Dolly
Name of the first cloned mammal, was also a sheep
Shortened Life
Could be an issue of cloning, Dolly provided evidence for this.
