Cloning Presentation

  1. 1. What is Cloning? Cloning should not be banned.
  2. 2. 1- DNA cloning/ Gene cloning 2- Reproductive cloning (Dolly) 3- Therapeutic Cloning 3 types of cloning:
  3. 3. <ul><li>Practiced since 1970 </li></ul><ul><li>Common practice in molecular biology labs today. </li></ul><ul><li>Clones Genes; not cells or entire animals. </li></ul><ul><li>For large protein production </li></ul><ul><li>Study of viruses </li></ul><ul><li>Vaccines </li></ul><ul><li>No controversies in this branch of cloning </li></ul>DNA/ Gene Cloning
  4. 4. Generate a “twin animal”: same DNA (Dolly) <ul><li>Benefits: </li></ul><ul><li>1) Maintain good DNA in animal reproduction. </li></ul><ul><li>2) Cloning genetically modified animals: </li></ul><ul><li>- Xenotransplantation (avoid tissue rejection) </li></ul><ul><li>- Insulin producers </li></ul>Risks: 1) Highly inefficient: - Die mysteriously - High costs. 2) Morally wrong to experiment with animals. 3) Could lead to the cloning of humans. Reproductive Cloning
  5. 5. “ Production of human embryos for use in research: Stem cell research” <ul><li>Possible Benefits: </li></ul><ul><li>Produce whole organs from cloned stem cells. </li></ul><ul><li>Produce healthy cells for transplantation. </li></ul><ul><li>Reduce need for organ donors </li></ul><ul><li>Test drugs, understand diseases. </li></ul><ul><li>Risks: </li></ul><ul><li>Killing embryos in the process. </li></ul>Therapeutic Cloning
  6. 6. Cloned animals: (Reproductive Cloning) <ul><li>First cloned rabbit </li></ul><ul><li>by Chinese scientists </li></ul><ul><li>First cloned horse </li></ul><ul><li>by Italian Scientists </li></ul><ul><li>Snuppy: first cloned dog from South Korea. </li></ul><ul><li>CC “CopyCat” </li></ul><ul><li>First cloned cat from Texas. </li></ul><ul><li>Ralph: The first cloned rat by French scientists </li></ul>
  7. 7. Works Cited <ul><li>National Human Genome research Institute, March 12, 2009. Web 9 Nov, 2009. http://www.genome.gov/25020028#1 . </li></ul><ul><li>Robert Gilmore McKinnell, Cloning of frogs, mice, and other animals. Minneapolis: University of Minnesota, 1985. Print. </li></ul>
