Not 1, not 2, not 3, but 4 clones!
Chinese researchers have produced a theory for a quantum cloning machine able to produce several copies of the state of a particle at atomic or sub-atomic scale, or quantum state, in an article about to be published in EPJ D. This could have implications for quantum information processing methods used, for example, in message encryption systems. (2011-11-04)

Approximate quantum cloning: The new way of eavesdropping in quantum cryptography
Cloning of quantum states is used for eavesdropping in the context of quantum cryptography or for quantum computation. Uncertainty at the quantum scale makes exact cloning of quantum states impossible. Yet, they may be copied in an approximate way using a method called probabilistic quantum cloning, or PQC. In a new study published in EPJ D, Pinshu Rui from Anhui Xinhua and Anhui Universities, Hefei, China, and colleagues demonstrate that partial PQC is possible. (2018-02-20)

Most clones doomed from the start, according to Temple University embryologist
Until scientists can improve the early development of cloned embryos, cloning will remain marginally successful, according to research presented today at the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS).

How can a legally binding agreement on human cloning be established?
Since Dolly the Sheep was cloned, the question of whether human reproductive cloning should be banned or pursued has been the subject of international debate. Adèle Langlois, of the University of Lincoln, UK, argues that a robust global governance framework on human cloning should draw on recent successes in climate change and business ethics for inspiration. The report is published in Springer Nature's open access journal Palgrave Communications. (2017-03-21)

Therapeutic cloning no longer a dream, says scientist who produced first cloned embryonic stem cell
A member of the team who were the first in the world to produce stem cells from a cloned human embryo told the 20th annual conference of the European Society for Human Reproduction and Embryology today that the work could generate potentially unlimited undifferentiated stem cells. These could eventually be used for tissue repair and transplantation medicine. (2004-06-30)

Scientists track down the root of cloning problems
A new study led by the Whitehead Institute traces the origin of two major problems plaguing the field of animal cloning. They report that poor survival rate of clones is influenced by the genetic background of the donor cell, and the gross overgrowth of clones results from the cloning procedure. (2001-05-09)

Direct cloning method CAPTUREs novel microbial natural products
Microorganisms possess natural product biosynthetic gene clusters (BGCs) that may harbor unique bioactivities for use in drug development and agricultural applications.

Precise quantum cloning: Possible pathway to secure communication
Physicists in Australia have cloned light at the quantum scale, opening the door to ultra-secure encrypted communications. 'We have produced near-perfect clones of light beams encoded with quantum information,' said lead researcher Professor Ping Koy Lam.'Our clones are higher quality than have ever been made before. We hope this technology could be used to extend the range of communication, and one day lead to impenetrable privacy between two communicating parties,' he said. (2016-10-26)

Researchers reveal early steps in clone development
Despite widely publicized reports about the sheep, Dolly and Polly, cloning is still not considered successful in the scientific community. Only two percent of clones succeed and they are sometimes unhealthy. To understand exactly where cloning goes wrong, researchers at Temple University School of Medicine (TUSM) examined and compared the earliest stages of development in normal embryos and cloned embryos. (2003-11-25)

Consumer views on cloned products breed different results, Kansas State study shows

Stem-cell research and reproductive cloning laws should be separate
The author of a Public Policy article in this week's issue of THE LANCET discusses recent failures of international organisations to establish clear policies with regard to stem-cell research and reproductive cloning. This will have implications for research scientists who will not be clear about the type of research programmes that could be publicly funded or that are legally permissible in the near future. (2004-07-08)

Young sea animals clone themselves--century-old debate halted
After more than a century of intensive study, scientists have assumed that larvae of non-parasitic invertebrates reproduce only very rarely, but new research by University of Alberta scientists overthrows this conventional wisdom. Graduate student Alexandra Eaves and Dr. Richard Palmer, from the U of A's Faculty of Science, have found that asexual cloning by some marine invertebrate larvae is not as rare and enigmatic a phenomenon as previously assumed. (2003-09-10)

New study shows normal-looking clones may be abnormal
Scientists have found the first evidence to show that even seemingly normal-looking clones may harbor serious abnormalities affecting gene expression that may not manifest themselves as outward characteristics. The findings, reported in the July 6 issue of Science by researchers at the Whitehead Institute for Biomedical Research and University of Hawaii, confirm the previous suspicion that reproductive cloning is not only inefficient, but may actually be unsafe. (2001-07-05)

Research led by investigators at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center has shown that therapeutic cloning, also known as somatic-cell nuclear transfer, can be used to treat Parkinson's disease in mice. (2008-03-23)

Gene that's key to cloning success also hints at serious hurdles to reproductive cloning
Scientists at the University of Pennsylvania have found that the activity of a single gene is a powerful predictor of whether newly cloned mammalian embryos will survive and thrive, but the gene's sporadic expression in cloned mouse embryos casts fresh doubt on prospects for reproductive human cloning. (2002-05-14)

BresaGen announces Australia's first cloned pig
An Australian biotechnology company has made a major breakthrough in cloning technology. Australia's first cloned pig is now five weeks old, has been weaned, and is healthy and growing normally.

Scientists develop most efficient mouse cloning strategy to date, create transgenic clone
Tetley is no ordinary mouse. And it's not just because he's a clone. Tetley is special because he was created using a new technology that researchers say has produced the most efficient results to date for cloning mice. He is also the first mouse clone whose genetic material was modified in the laboratory before cloning. The technology used to create Tetley, say researchers, will have a major impact on improving the efficiency of cloning in general. (2000-01-30)

Expressing strong concern at human cloning reports, AAAS cautions against overreaction
The world's largest general scientific organization, the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), today expressed great concern about recent reports of the first cloned human baby, urging policymakers and the public to treat such claims skeptically until confirmed scientific evidence is in hand. (2003-01-02)

Sand dollar larvae use cloning to 'make change,' confound predators
Biologists find that sand dollar larvae created clones of themselves within 24 hours of being exposed to fish mucous, a cue that predators are near. The cloning process resulted in small new larvae and original larvae that were substantially smaller. (2008-03-13)

UC Davis' first cloned calf born, succumbs three days later
The first calf cloned and delivered at the University of California, Davis, died Saturday, just three days after its birth. Results of the necropsy or animal autopsy, which should pinpoint the cause of death, are pending. The brown and white Hereford calf was delivered by Caesarean section Aug. 15 at the UC Davis Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital. It was part of a research project aimed at determining if the type of cell used in the cloning procedure affects cloning success. (2001-08-23)
