Dolly the Sheep was a phenomenon that spread through the world like wildfire. She was born on July 5, 1996 and was the first mammal effectively cloned from an adult somatic cell. Dolly was such an amazing discovery because before her creation there was no evidence that proved that animal cells could form entirely new organisms. The process to create Dolly was an excruciating one that took two hundred seventy seven tries. Other laboratories at that time were unable to produce similar results to Dolly’s, much less a living, functioning clone. Dolly was so influential and renowned because she “shattered theories in science,’’ (Kolata, 2003) said Dr. Randall Prather, a cloning expert at the University of Missouri. People thought clones were impossible to create because of the complexity involved, and the failures that had happened in the past. With a great number of skilled biologists and scientists going into the study of cloning, the field has started growing and expanding to various counties around the world.
The process of cloning is a timely and delicate process that has many pros and cons. When a scientist clones an organism, it is as if he is taking life into his own hands and
