- Cloning - The Process (CNN - Kellan)
Provides information on the process of cloning used in the breakthrough scientific discovery.
- Cloning and Bioethics (CNN)
President Bill Clinton asks bioethics commission to look at sheep cloning. Provides links on bioethics related to cloning.
- Cloning and Bioethics (Center for Bioethics)
Presents a forum for discussing ethical issues related to biological research.
- Cloning in Biotechnology
- Cloning - First Human Embryo Cloned (BBC News)
Describes the first known case of human cloning. The researchers said that they are trying to develop stem cells to be used in medicine, not develop a human clone. 2001
- Human Cloning Advanced for Treating Disease (BBC News)
"South Korean scientists have cloned 30 human embryos to obtain cells they hope could one day be used to treat disease."
"The resulting embryos were then grown up to produce so-called stem cells that can divide into any tissue in the body."
"The aim is to use the cells to replace ones that have failed in patients with problems such as Alzheimer's disease." 2-4.
- -12-31-11 Scientists Use Cloning to Create Stem Cells (Time.com)
"It's not quite human cloning, but it's close. Researchers reported using a variation of somatic cell nuclear transfer (SCNT) — the same technique that created Dolly the sheep, the first mammal to be cloned, from a skin cell of a ewe — on human cells. SCNT involves replacing the genetic material of an egg cell with the DNA from a mature cell (a skin cell, for example). The egg is then stimulated to divide, and if it develops fully, produces a genetically identical clone of the animal from which the mature cell was taken." 12-11
- Mathematical Theorems (Wikipedia.org)
"A theorem is a statement which can be proven true within some logical framework. Proving theorems is a central activity of mathematics." Provides 212 theorems.

- Chicken Eggs Produce Human Antibodies (Scientific American)
"By cloning a single B lymphocyte, researchers can mass produce identical antibody molecules that will attack a single, specific target. 'Monoclonal antibodies have demonstrated great success as human therapeutics, with over 25 approved for human therapeutic use and an increasing number of these proteins in clinical development,' remarks Robert J. Etches of Origen Therapeutics." 9-05
- -01-30-09 Cloned Pets May Not Act Like Originals (ABC News)
"But cloning pets is a relatively new and expensive procedure that not only raises questions about spending thousands of dollars to recreate a cat or dog when thousands of others languish in pounds, but about the psychic toll pet owners face when the clone of their favorite cat or dog looks -- but doesn't act -- like the original." 01-09
- Scientists Clone Glowing Dogs (CBS News)
"South Korean scientists say they have engineered four beagles that glow red using cloning techniques that could help develop cures for human diseases." 04-09
