Animal cloning: Art and ethics
Prasanta Kumar K Mishra, Anupama Jena, Sadhna Ojha and Aditya Agrawal
Cloning of animals is both fascinating and debatable in this modern world. This is replication of nature’s established protocol to generate an organism of similar genetic make-up but with little modifications contributed by humans. Here the creation is trying to act as a creator for replica. Controversies from both ethical and religious point of view have been there regarding animal cloning. Various techniques have been applied to produce clones of different species. Somatic cell nuclear transfer (SCNT) can be considered as a widely accepted technique in the field of farm animals cloning. Though cloning was conceptualized based on conservation of rarest germ plasm and creating an era of replicative life but it is still questionable.
