Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona researchers first to clone mice in Spain
Researchers at the Department of Cell Biology, Physiology and Immunology at Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB) are the first to have cloned mice in Spain. Cloe, Cleo and Clona are three female brown-coloured mice and were born respectively on 12 May, 3 June and 10 June. View News Article (2009-06-12)

Mouse stem cell line advance suggests potential for IVF-incompetent eggs
Researchers have found that mouse oocytes that fail to become fertilized during in vitro fertilization are nevertheless often capable of succeeding as "cytoplasmic donors" during a subsequent cloning step using so-called nuclear transfer. View News Article (2007-02-20)

The British Endocrine Societies (BES) meeting is Europe┬ís major annual gathering of hormone specialists. To mark their joint meeting with the European Federation of Endocrine Societies, the BES is presenting a discussion on human cloning on Thursday 16 March, at the ICC in Birmingham. View News Article (2000-03-08)

Genetics Policy Institute leads global battle to head off UN ban of therapeutic cloning on Dec 8 - Response to US led stealth campaign
Coral Gables, Florida - (December 1, 2003): The Genetics Policy Institute (GPI) has organized a worldwide grassroots campaign to oppose any efforts in the United Nations to institute a ban of therapeutic cloning. This comes following the revelation that the United States and countries supporting a ban on all forms of cloning, including therapeutic cloning research, may force a vote on the issue...

Mapping the maize genome
Positional cloning is a genetic mapping technique used to pinpoint the location of specific traits of interest, such as disease-causing genes or mutations, within the genome. View News Article (2015-01-21)

Two-year delay at UN must not stop immediate International efforts to curb reproductive cloning
The Human Cloning Policy Institute (HCPI) continues to press its World Court Initiative asking the United Nations General Assembly, the World Health Organization (WHO) and UNESCO to seek an advisory opinion from the International Court of Justice declaring human reproductive cloning a "crime against humanity." HCPI executive director, Bernard Siegel, stated, " The United Nations... View News Article (2003-11-07)

Therapeutic cloning gets a boost with new research findings
Germ cells, the cells which give rise to a mammal's sperm or eggs, exhibit a five to ten-fold lower rate of spontaneous point mutations than adult somatic cells, which give rise to the body's remaining cell types, tissues and organs. Despite their comparatively higher mutation rates, however, adult somatic cells are used as the donor cells in a cloning process called somatic cell nuclear transfer...

Widespread support for nonembryonic stem cell research, VCU Life Sciences Survey shows
The VCU Life Sciences Survey is the first poll to reflect the discovery reported internationally in November that human skin cells can be used to create stem cells or their near equivalents. When asked about the implications of this development, more than six in 10, or 63 percent, say that both embryonic and non-embryonic stem cell research is still needed, 22 percent say this development means...

Animal eggs not suitable substitutes to produce stem cells
Since the cloning of Dolly the Sheep over a decade ago, somatic cell nuclear transfer (SCNT) has been considered a promising way to generate human, patient-specific stem cells for therapeutic applications. View News Article (2009-02-03)

Researchers Look to Imprinted Genes for Clues to Fetal Growth Restriction in Cloned Swine
Researchers at North Carolina State University have found that intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR), which results in low birth weight and long-term deleterious health effects in cloned swine, is linked to a type of gene - known as an imprinted gene - found only in placental mammals. View News Article (2009-07-21)
