But beyond the high price tag, there are ethical questions to consider when cloning a pet. Pulitzer prize-winning journalist John Woestendiek wrote a book Dog, Inc. about dog cloning. This is not cloning to make a genetically matched baby, but cloning for research purposes -- also called therapeutic cloning or research cloning. What's more, many animal clones die late in.

In the early s, a more sophisticated form of cloning animals was developed, known as.   T. Takala, in Encyclopedia of Applied Ethics (Second Edition), Introduction. Human reproductive cloning became an issue in when the birth of Dolly the sheep, the first cloned mammal, was announced. People throughout the world rushed to condemn human cloning as an absolute moral wrong, and a number of laws and treaties were quickly drafted in this spirit.

Pet cloning is the cloning of a pet common way in which an animal is cloned is by somatic cell nuclear this process an oocyte is taken from a surrogate mother and put through a process called enucleation, which removes the nucleus from inside oocyte.

Somatic cells are then taken from the animal that is being cloned, transferred into the blank oocyte and fused using an. If the pet owner decides, at some point in the future, that they would like to clone their animal—even if the animal has been deceased 20, 30 years—the cells can be thawed and used to.

Is it safe for the animals involved. What are the ethical implications for cloning pets and other animals. Today, there are a handful of commercial companies and institutions, many of them located in South Korea, committed to bringing cloning to ordinary pet owners—for a price.

Dolly the sheep was cloned 22 years ago, inand ViaGen Pets has been cloning horses and livestock for 17 years. The company began cloning pet dogs and cats in “We’re the only company in the world that is cloning cats for pet owners and the only company in the United States that is cloning pet dogs,” Dr.

Ryan said. Dog Cloning in the U.S. Dog cloning through ViaGen Pets presents an opportunity for dog owners to open a new window for extending their relationships with their beloved pets. Dogs provide a unique form of companionship, loyalty and love.

It is difficult for many dog owners to imagine life without their dog. Lab techs at these facilities will clone your pet using a process called somatic cell nuclear transfer, the same method used to clone Dolly the sheep back in   5. Identical DNA does not necessarily mean an identical animal.

People will believe what they want to believe about animal cloning. John Woestendiek, who wrote the book Dog Inc.: The Uncanny Inside Story of Cloning Man’s Best Friend, told IO9 in of a man who believed the soul of his dog “found its way into his clone.” As we saw with.

In addition, the commercial labs that clone pets aren’t necessarily forthcoming about what goes on behind the scenes, she said. And if the ethics of it don’t bother you, consider this: A. Extend the special bond with your beloved pet.

ViaGen Pets is America’s pet cloning and genetic preservation experts. Contact ViaGen at Cloning pets. [Sean Price] -- Explores the possibility of one day being able to clone pets, and poses the question as to whether doing so is a good idea.

These books introduce real-world science examples that explain how scientists go about their work. According to the pet-cloning company, ViaGen, “A cloned animal shares the identical genes from the donor pet, just like naturally occurring identical twins do.” Cloning preserves your pet’s exact genetic identity.

What is the Cost. The cloning itself costs $50, for dogs and $25, for cats according to ViaGen. The price includes state.

Additionally, the replacement of dead or dying household pets and children with genetic disorders, termed ''reproductive cloning,'' has become a social argument in favor of cloning. In fact, in a company devoted solely to the cloning of household pets opened, and though it closed after only a short, two-year stint, some people continue to.

Like it or not, animal cloning has come a long way. And according to an article I read in Science, the world’s best polo player now competes using a team of six cloned horses.”. But as shown by Cc the cloned cat, a clone may not turn out exactly like the original pet whose DNA was used to make the clone.

What are the potential drawbacks of cloning animals. Reproductive cloning is a very inefficient technique and most cloned animal embryos cannot develop into healthy individuals. For instance, Dolly was the only clone. The debate has a clear purpose: to present the benefits and drawbacks of cloning a pet.

Structure. The text addresses the reader directly as “you.” It includes a hypothetical situation and contains cause-and-effect and compare-and-contrast structures.

Language Conventionality and Clarity. Cloning produced the first animal ‘clone’, that is a genetic duplicate of an animal, in the form of ‘Dolly’, a sheep, who was born on 5 th of July, Since then, the process of animal cloning has been refined and has produced many specimen animals, that are genetic replicas.

The contributing authors are the principal investigators on each of the animal species cloned to date, and are expertly qualified to present the state-of-the-art information in their respective areas.

The puppies, she said, were cloned from cells taken from “Sammie’s” mouth and stomach by ViaGen Pets, a pet-cloning company based in Texas that charges $50, for the service.The pET System is the most powerful system yet developed for the cloning and expression of recombinant proteins in E.

coli. Target genes are cloned in pET plasmids under control of strong bacteriophage T7 transcription and (optionally) translation signals; expression is induced by providing a source of T7 RNA polymerase in the host cell. Pet cloning is not confined to China — Barbra Streisand famously declared last year that two of her dogs are clones — and people have been cloning cats for years.
