Where is embryonic stem cell research at?

Exactly although therapeutic methodology has already been developed, SCNT. The patient is the donor of the cell as so there is no rejection....the restrictions in the case of SCNT are the fact that human eggs are required and ennucleated ready for nuclear ...

I've just been reading about cloning from somatic cells and in particular the example of Dolly the sheep, and there's just one thing I'm not sure about... Why were two donor sheep used to clone Dolly? i.e. Why were the cytoplasmic donor and the nuclear donor not the same sheep? Surely if the somatic...

Somatic Cell Nuclear Transfer

I'm doing a research project on SCNT and the genetic information in the nucleus from the somatic cell is transferred to the clone, but the the clone also inherits the mitochondrial DNA from the egg cell the somatic cell nucleus is inserted ...
