Scientists Have Cloned Embryos From Adult Cells For The First Time Ever

Ever since Dolly the sheep was cloned eighteen years ago, scientists have been trying and failing to use that same technique to create cloned human embryos from adult cells. Now, they have finally succeeded, in what could a major step toward personalised organ transplants and other therapies that rely on a pool of stem cells.


Scientists Use Acid To Turn Blood Cells Into Stem Cells In 30 Seconds

This is a game changer, folks. Whereas mining stem cells has been either an ethical quandary or a months-long affair, scientist can now turn any old blood cells into stem cells in just 30 seconds — by dipping them in acid.


China Is Cloning Pigs On An 'Industrial Scale'

A new report by the BBC reveals that China isn’t just experimenting with cloning — it’s doing it on an “industrial scale”. This is at best interesting and at worst more than a small cause for concern.


Study: Amber-Preserved Insects Don't Have DNA...Will That Stop Clive Palmer?

A new study suggests the worst possible news for fans of Jurassic Park: it’s not possible to isolate DNA from amber-preserved insects. Could be a hurdle for Aussie mining magnate and likely MP, Clive Palmer’s plans to clone a dinosaur and build a real-life Jurassic park in Queensland. He’s already got approvals.


This Nonprofit Is Quietly Cloning The World's Largest (And Oldest) Trees

The 2500-year-old Ankerwycke Yew, which sits near a medieval nunnery in Southern England, has borne witness to some serious history. It shaded the King of England during the signing of the Magna Carta. It was a favourite meeting spot of Anne Boleyn and King Henry. And it’s likely going to see a whole lot more, after the Archangel Ancient Tree Archive finishes cloning it.


A Human Stem Cell Has Been Cloned For The First Time

Almost two decades ago, scientists succeeded in cloning Dolly the sheep. Now, the same process has been allowed scientists to clone embryonic stem cells from fetal human skin cells for the very first time. There are no more barriers between us and creating human clones.


Is Cloning The Key To Perfect Christmas Trees?

When you think of cloning, you’ll probably either think of Dolly, or maybe some sort of sci-fi clone army. German scientists, on the other hand, their minds hop to Christmas trees, and the hope that cloning can bring us all perfect ones forever.


Australian Billionaire Wants To Build Jurassic Park-Style Resort

For those not familiar with the CV of mining billionaire Clive Palmer, you could be forgiven for thinking this sounds a bit out there, but sources close to the man himself are reporting that Palmer wants to clone a dinosaur from DNA and release it in his resort in Coolum, Queensland. Welcome…to Jurassic Palmer.


Mammoths May Be Roaming The World Soon

Scientists have been trying to clone woolly mammoths for years, but now they’re really close. So close that in five years you may see herds of this gigantic beast — one of our favourite extinct prehistoric animals of all time.


China Is Cloning This Entire European City

Not happy with cloning watches, iPods, trains and even combat airplanes, the Chinese are now cloning an entire European city. And not any city, but the mountain town of Hallstatt, Austria, a UNESCO World Heritage site.
