Fear, Wonder, and Science in the New Age of Reproductive Biotechnology

Clara Pinto-Correia

Columbia University Press

What was it like to be a young woman in a laboratory that was cloning some of the first mammals? What were the motivations of the people in the laboratory? And why did people want to clone animals in the first place? How did the failure to clone healthy mammals lead to stem cell technology and the banking of umbilical cord stem cells? This first-person account looks at the very human side of cloning.

Keywords:   Dolly, cloning, laboratory life, research and development, applied biology, stem cells, umbilical cord stem cells
