  1. reproductive cloning

    Reproductive cloning is a form of biotechnological process that involves creating an exact genetic duplicate or replica of an organism, usually an animal, by transferring the nucleus from a somatic cell of the organism into an enucleated egg cell. The cloned organism is an exact genetic copy of the original organism, with the same DNA. Reproductive cloning has been used to clone animals such as sheep, cows, and cats, but is highly controversial when considered in the context of cloning human beings.
