  1. Divergent Approaches Regulating Beta Agonists and Cloning of Animals for Food: USA and European Union

    Contributor(s):: Centner, T. J., Petetin, L.

  2. Effect of genetic homogeneity on behavioural variability in an object recognition test in cloned Göttingen minipigs

    Contributor(s):: Søndergaard, Lene Vammen, Herskin, Mette S., Ladewig, Jan, Holm, Ida Elisabeth, Dagnæs-Hansen, Frederik

    The number of animals used in research should be limited as much as possible. Among cloned animals, genetic variation is minimal and to the extent that behaviour is genetically determined inter-individual variability is expected to be higher among naturally bred animals. However, the cloning...

    Cloning specific individuals is the way to produce targeted animals. This makes newborns without surplus animals which should be adapted to new families afterwards or supported by institutions for whole life. Cloning excellent dogs had been started from this point. Many cloned dogs have been...

  5. To Clone or not to Clone: A Look at Why Cloning Fluffy and Fido Might not be in the Best Interests of Society and May Inevitably Pave the Way for Human Cloning

    | Contributor(s):: Penelope Tsernoglou

    Dolly was the first. Others soon followed: goats, pigs, and mice to name a few. Recently the world has witnessed the first birth of a cloned companion animal, CC the cat. This is a huge step in making cloning more acceptable within American society because humans relate far more to...

  6. Taking responsibility for cloning: discourses of care and knowledge in biotechnological approaches to nonhuman life

    | Contributor(s):: Carey, J. L. W.

    This article examines the practice of animal cloning in relation to discourses of care and responsibility, in particular a common cultural interpretation of care theorized by Michel Foucault. This interpretation figures care as a "pastoral" relation premised in essential differences between...

  8. Genetic diversity of Toxoplasma gondii in animals and humans

    | Contributor(s):: L. David Sibley, Asis Khan, James W. Ajioka, Benjamin M. Rosenthal

    Toxoplasma gondii is one of the most widespread parasites of domestic, wild, and companion animals, and it also commonly infects humans. Toxoplasma gondii has a complex life cycle. Sexual development occurs only in the cat gut, while asexual replication occurs in many vertebrate hosts. These...

  11. Cloning companion animals is wrong

    | Contributor(s):: Bok, H.

    "... Cloning is not safe, and it is not widely understood. Nevertheless, I suppose that some extremely compelling reason might justify our cloning animals. However, there is no such justification for the Missyplicity Project." ...

  14. Ethical issues in animal cloning

    | Contributor(s):: Autumn Fiester

    The issue of human reproductive cloning has recently received a great deal attention in public discourse.
