Medicine and Science By: Makaila Roberts Dolly the sheep was born on July 5, 1996 at Scotland's Roslin Institute. Baa!!!! Dolly is best know as being the first
mammal to be cloned How did they clone Dolly? The scientists took the nucleus from and udder cell and placed it in an egg cell from another animal that was unfertilized. *The following video explains this process* The Pros of Cloning We move farther in our technology.
We learn about DNA and genetics.
There will be organ replacements available.
It can take the place of natural reproduction.
And we would be able to decide certain traits we want in the organisms. The Cons of Cloning (in humans) The loss of diversity and uniqueness.
The finances and cost.
The dangerous procedures.
Discrimination towards the cloned human.
The feeling of unimportance due to being easily replaced.
Only God creates humans. Would we be playing God by making human copies ourselves? She was named after the famous country singer
named Dolly Parton. The scientists also wanted Dolly to mate.
They chose a welsh mountain ram to be
her partner and they had a total of 6 lambs.
This experiment proved that even clones
can have babies. Dolly and her Offspring Due to being a clone, she had several health
problems, including arthritis and SPA. SPA is a lung disease that causes
growths in the lungs to develop. The
illness has many side effects, but the worst
part is that it is incurable. They doctors
had no choice but to put her down. Most sheep die at 11-12 years old, but Dolly
died at 6. She died on February 14, 2003.
