The Science of Animal Cloning

Are you interested in how an animal is cloned?  What about identical twins, are they clones of one another? The Dolan DNA Learning center has developed an interactive activity to show you what clones are, the techniques that make cloning and animal possible and some of the animals scientists have successfully cloned over the years.  You'll not only discover how scientists first cloned sheep and mice, but you'll find that identical twins do fit the definition of clones.  You'll even explore why animal clones may one day be the answer for human health issues!
