What is Cloning?
This free resource from the University of Utah's Genetic Science Learning Center provides an overview of cloning for the layperson. The Genetic Science Learning Center "is a nationally and internationally-recognized education program that translates science and health for non-experts." Their concise introduction to the controversial genetic practice of cloning includes introductions to artificial embryo twinning and somatic cell nuclear transfer (SCNT), as well as a comparison of SCNT to the natural fertilization of an embryo and a comparison of organism cloning to gene cloning. This resource contains three short interactive "compare and contrast" videos as well as a helpful infographic about human genome cloning.
