Willadsen joins Grenada.
|In 1985 Steen Willadsen, the first to clone a farm animal using the nuclear
joined Grenada Genetics, a bioengineering company. Willadsen used his
cloning technique to duplicate the embryos of prize cattle. Grenada
Genetics saw the profitability of the future cattle
cloning industry. Top breed cattle embryos were highly
desired by farmers, Willadsen's procedure mass produced
identical copies of such embryos.
At Grenada, Willadsen successfully cloned cattle from differentiated week old embryo cells. This feat proved that the DNA of specialized cells could be returned to its original state.
