The issue of human reproductive cloning has recently received a great deal attention in public discourse. Bioethicists, policy makers, and the media have been quick to identify the key ethical issues involved in human reproductive cloning and to argue, almost unanimously, for an international ban on such attempts. Meanwhile, scientists have proceeded with extensive research agendas in the cloning of animals. Despite this research, there has been little public discussion of the ethical issues… 
Scientific and Ethical Implications of Human and Animal Cloning
  • Sidra Shafique
  • Biology
    International Journal of Science, Technology and Society
  • 2020
TLDR
The issue of cloning in general with a focus on human cloning, in particular, is discussed understandably by everyone interested in cloning and its impacts on society.
Animal cloning applications and issues
TLDR
The current paradigm involvingAnimal cloning efficiency is shown, and applications to improve animal cloning efficiency are elucidates and further elucidates.
Insight into Animal Cloning and the Food Chain: a Qualitative Examination of Key Opinion Leaders and a Cross Section of the Irish Public.
TLDR
The results indicate that formal discussion on the use and implications of animal cloning in food production had not occurred within key opinion leader organisations and among the Irish public, key findings on the receptivity to cloning included animal welfare aspects, varying interpretations on modern agriculture and the influence of science-fiction on the reception of new technologies.
Commercial Applications of SCNT in Livestock
TLDR
Livestock produced through cloning are no different than any other animal, and livestock products found by regulators from Europe, Japan, and the United States to be identical to products from conventional animals.
Animal Cloning Drawbacks An-Overview
TLDR
The problems, due to which cloning is considered as an inefficient technique are focused, and more work need to understand exact cause of failure during pre- and postnatal development of cloned animals.
Animal cloning and consumption of its by-products: A scientific and Islamic perspectives
Animal Biotechnology 2
TLDR
This chapter will attempt to address the inputs utilized for this procedure and the major manipulation steps with the objective of identifying the major factors which might affect this efficiency of reprogramming and some of the studies addressing these factors.
Resuscitation and resurrection: The ethics of cloning cheetahs, mammoths, and Neanderthals
TLDR
It is important to discuss and plan for the constraints necessary to mitigate the harms of conservation and extinct cloning, and it is imperative that scientific and public discourse enlighten and guide actions in the sphere of cloning.
Personhood and Cloning: Modern Applications and Ethics of Stem Cell and Cloning Technology
TLDR
This first section of the thesis explores the philosophical and practical meaning of personhood with a biological background intended for those not familiar with the origin or uses of stem cells and possible cloning technologies.

TLDR
A thorough, authoritative assessment and explanation of what has been done, including recent animal cloning, and what the possibilities are for this new fascinating science are provided.

TLDR
It is suggested that new technologies should be developed for use in laboratory and domestic animals since they can benefit humankind, but that more restraint and prayerful consideration of each technological advance should be made before its application to human medicine.

TLDR
The strategy underlying the code of ethics established by Genetic Savings & Clone (GSC) is examined, which may offer companion animal caregivers (pet owners) a way to increase their chances of securing a new dog or cat with physical and behavioral qualities similar to those of a much-loved companion of many years.
Ontogeny of Cloned Cattle to Lactation
TLDR
The data represent the most comprehensive information on cattle derived from nuclear transfer procedures and indicate that this emerging reproductive technology offers unique opportunities to meet critical needs in both human health care and agriculture.
Cloned mice have an obese phenotype not transmitted to their offspring
TLDR
It is reported that the increased body weight of cloned B6C3F1 female mice reflects an increase of body fat in addition to a larger body size, and that these mice share many characteristics consistent with obesity.
Phenotyping of transgenic cloned piglets.
TLDR
During the course of this study, five of the 10 piglets were euthanized or died, indicating there is a high mortality rate among cloned piglets, but the remaining five cloning piglets are free from detectable defects.
A highly efficient method for porcine cloning by nuclear transfer using in vitro-matured oocytes.
TLDR
A simple nuclear transfer protocol, utilizing commercially available in vitro-matured oocytes, that results in greater than 5% overall cloning efficiency is reported, and should facilitate the broad utilization of porcine cloning technology in transgenic and nontransgenic applications.
Animal Rights and Human Morality
TLDR
Animal Rights and Human Morality is about whether animals have moral and legal rights, particularly in the area of medical research, and the author makes an interesting and erudite case for such rights and the need to recognize them, drawing on a wide variety of sources.
Somatic cell nuclear transfer in mammals: progress and applications.
TLDR
The birth of sheep, cows, goats, and mice using this technique with fetal or adult cell donors is now established fact, and the success with adult mammalian cell donors extends the historic work in frogs by attesting to the totipotency of nuclei in at least some adult, differentiated cell types.
