Although there have been no confirmed cases of cloned human beings, cloning in theory allows scientists to create a genetic copy of another human individual. The clone would not be an exact physical copy and he/she would have his/her own individual personality and unique fingers prints and toe prints in spite of sharing DNA with the person from whom he/she was cloned.
