CC the copy cat and genomic imprinting

Post by Ultrashogun » Tue May 13, 2008 5:42 pm

I read that the first pet to be cloned(cat) is completely healthy and has none of the problems that other cloned mammals have. How is it that the cat doesnt even show signs of paternal/maternal disomia due to genomic imprinting?
