We have all seen different movies about people being cloned & heard different theories about scientist cloning people and animals, but how much of this do you guys really believe? Here’s a brief explanation on cloning from www.genome.gov.
What is cloning?
The term cloning describes a number of different processes that can be used to produce genetically identical copies of a biological entity. The copied material, which has the same genetic makeup as the original, is referred to as a clone.
Do clones ever occur naturally?
Yes. In nature, some plants and single-celled organisms, such as bacteria, produce genetically identical offspring through a process called asexual reproduction. In asexual reproduction, a new individual is generated from a copy of a single cell from the parent organism.
Natural clones, also known as identical twins, occur in humans and other mammals. These twins are produced when a fertilized egg splits, creating two or more embryos that carry almost identical DNA. Identical twins have nearly the same genetic makeup as each other, but they are genetically different from either parent.
Take a look at this video where Kid Buu thoroughly explains how he was cloned & after you watch it, I want to talk to you guys about this. He also claimed that Gucci Mane & Michael Jackson were clones like him as well.
