      Dolly (the sheep), the first mammal to be cloned from an adult cell, was born in 1997. In the early 2000s people thought the technology was unsafe and inefficient.

Sir Ian Wilmut and Dolly (the sheep).

      Companies are already cloning pets, but this is very expensive.

 

      In China scientists have successfully cloned monkeys. The process was difficult and needed 63 surrogate* “mothers” for only 16 pregnancies.

 

      We are closer to cloning a human today, but there are still many barriers. One of them is ethics, and many countries have banned* the research.

      * Surrogate mother = substitute mother
      * Banned  = prohibited
