The Future of Cloning
Nuclear transfer, cloning, and stem cloning take huge parts in our expectations for the future of biotechnology and biomedical engineering. Many of the parts of cloning that now seem natural for scientists was completely unimaginable just a few years ago. The Red Cross has begun an extensive cloning project relating to the cloning of pigs to help organ donors. Some Agribiotech companies see cloning as a way to produce disease resist ant live stock. they also see it as a way to produce cattle with higher quality meat. Some genetically valuable animals like race horses con be reproduced when the baby the mother is reproducing is still born or sick. Some conservations want to use cloning to protect endangered species. That's a good idea because some animals are so rare that they couldn't save themselves on their own, for these species cloning may be their only hope for survival. Animals that do an important job in helping people such as, seeing eye dogs and search and rescue animals can be cloned. The average pet owner may want to clone a favorite pet for the next generation to enjoy. no matter what someone might want to do animal cloning knowledge is growing rapidly and the future certainly holds cloning opportunities that we couldn't even imagine today.
The ability to clone a cell's DNA is probably the most significant discovery of the 20th century. Whether cloning and its related areas of genetic engineering do things that we know about now or things that we have not yet imagined. All that we can do now is preserve genetic samples of our pets so that in the future when the original has died there can be another cloned.
