-There are advancements in cloning such as scientists being able to clone the first mammal in 1996. Adult somatic cells were cloned in 1997. Human cloning saw its first success last year at Oregon.

-Cloning is the process of creating an identical copy of an organism or thing. and even medicine. It is almost always intentional. Researchers remove a somatic cell then transfer a different somatic cell into the organism. There is also nuclear transfer where you remove the nucleus and import a new one. This is how the first animal was cloned, Dolly the Sheep.

-Cloning is important because it allows scientists to discover what proteins are present and explore what happens in a cell when the proteins are changed. It also helps us understand diseases and can lead to new treatment for those diseases.

-It has impacted medicine because it finds out the genes that cause diseases. You can use cloning to manipulate or stimulate diseases. They use gene therapy, which is the transplantation of normal genes into cells with defective ones in order to correct genetic orders.

-Some potential problems with cloning would be that it causes health defects. It also results in abnormally large organs in animals. The clone would have permanent genetic damage, and there are large numbers of loss in the fetuses.

-Some ethical considerations with this technology would be that the cloning could deal genetic damage to the clone, health risks to the mother, and commodification of human life.
