The possibility of human cloning arose when Scottish scientists at Roslin Institute created the much-celebrated sheep "Dolly" (Nature 385, 810-13, 1997), which aroused worldwide interest and many concerns, because of its scientific and ethical implications. The feat, cited by Science magazine as the breakthrough of 1997, also generated uncertainty over the meaning of "cloning" --an umbrella term traditionally used by scientists to describe different processes for duplicating biological material. (Genomics, 2009). In a cracker box, the argument is not that spare part cloning should not be done; it is because cloning parts are likely to show something wrong due to inappropriate genetic reprogramming.
