The Facts

From the Paper:

"While cloning of animals for food purposes sounds like something out of a science fiction movie, to many, the actual facts of the process are much less daunting. The animal that is cloned will have the exact same genetic-DNA copy as the donor animal has."
"It is done through a process called somatic cell nuclear transfer. During this process genes from the donor animal are removed and then inserted into an egg cell that has already had its nucleus removed. After the lab handles some housekeeping steps to insure egg viability the egg is then placed into a surrogate birthing animal (Temple pp).
It is not completely unlike invitro fertilization with a few exceptions about the way the egg is fertilized."
