Is cloning the way of the future

Extracts from this document...


Contents The topic Page Introduction What is cloning? Natural cloning How are clones created? Unnatural cloning Is cloning unnatural? Dolly the sheep The different types of cloning How can cloning be used? How it is used today? Stem Cells Is cloning ethnically right? Conclusion Bibliography Introduction Is cloning the way of the future? Well there are many arguments for and against it. In this case study I will be exploring the many different ways in which cloning can or can not be used in the future, discussing the many reasons for and against it. This investigation will study how cloning can affect us positively, when using it for medicine making it easier to replace faulty genes without the fear of rejection. As well as talking about the positive factors of cloning I will be talking about the cons. The cons will include the ethnic dilemmas and the public opinions; I will be taking fair and non biases results. Further more I will be providing evidence on a successful type of cloning. I will be evoking on the different types of cloning some being: natural and non natural cloning however there are more. In addition I will be talking about therapeutic cloning, along with an example of cloning, ethnic dilemmas, the risks, how clones are created and I will be arguing about the positive and negative factors of cloning and weather or not I think it is going to be successful in the future. ...read more.


Many religious people have different views on cloning thinking that it is just wrong; they believe there are many ethnical dilemmas with making clones. The religious beliefs cause many to go against the fact of cloning becoming a future medicine. Some religious perspectives of cloning are they believe that each human was made especially in God's image. When cloning another person, they are being made in that person's image, not in God's. This is what many Roman Catholics believe. Others have: mixed views, similar ideas and totally opposite concepts. Some Islamic people believe that it is can be good and bad in different situations, there should be no limits to research because God gave us the knowledge to do it. These are the some beliefs of some religious varying from different religious ideas of cloning as this there are other, beliefs from adults, scientists and many more expressing their opinions. On the other hand you many believe every scientist would be more all less for cloning, well you more or less right. Positive views accompanying, their backgrounds for cloning was made by Embryologist Dr Ian Wilmut, as he believes that cloning is a great way to as referred to genetics study and can enable further research on new disease, believing that cloning is an ideal method. Well as Dr Ian Wilmut, many other doctors believe cloning is a step forward to human medicine as in future faulty genes can be replaced without the doubt of them being rejected, as well as the above many scientists have been trying to find out ways of creating clones. ...read more.


The child's appearance is affected only by nuclear DNA." (this has been taken from "The Times" feb 5th) This article is an example of cloning used for a particular purpose; it tells us about a mother who replaces most of her faulty genes with healthy ones. This is one example of how cloning has been used recently. Stem Cells: Stem cells have the remarkable potential to change to any cell or organism that is needed, this is because stem cells are unspecialised cells. Stem cells have become important to us, as they are great factors that enable us to improve our health and correct faulty genes, by using them replace some genes, as well as this there are many other important uses in cell based therapies, to repair other damaged cells with in the body, and loads more. Cloning can also be produced for the stem cells with in it allowing us to replaces faulty genes with eases. Is cloning ethnically right? Well as I have mentioned in above pages there are many different view on weather or not cloning is ethnically right, some saying it is good other say it's not. There is not a exact answer to weather or not they are ethically right it actually depends upon the persons opinion. Conclusion Overall cloning is a huge leap forward for man kind as it has many benefits that can be acquire by the one process furthering our medical knowledge allowing us to produce more efficient and effective medicines for our patients. ...read more.

    Mammals do sometimes clone naturally, but by a quite different route. Sometimes a single embryo divides in the womb to form identical twins, or even divides twice to produce identical quads. Nine-banded armadillos, for reasons unknown, always produce identical quads.

  1. What is population genetics and how is it put to practical use?

    that genetic drift is much more important when population sizes are small, due to 1/2N being a lot more favourable for any given allele. Smaller populations obtain fixation much faster whereas larger populations see drift take a lot longer to fix an allele.
