Cloning is production copies of identical cells
or organisms from one cell.
The produced organisms have the same
Cloning occurs naturally by Bacteria ,Viruses,
Some insects and plants which asexual
1- DNA Cloning: “Recombinant DNA, Molecular
cloning or Gene cloning” only the DNA of a
cell is replicated.
2- Reproductive cloning: is a technology used
to generate an animal that has the same
nuclear DNA as another currently animal
Dolly, was cloned by “Reproductive cloning”
3- therapeutic cloning: like reproductive
cloning, except that the embryos are not
allowed to develop fully.
the purpose of therapeutic cloning to extract
stem cell from embryo and study them.
