Cloning monkeys

When I get a minute, I'll comment on this news about the first successful attempt to produce cloned monkey embryos for research purposes. It will very likely breathe some new life into debates about human cloning.

Meanwhile, having written a lot about cloning - including a whole novel about the difficulties involved in cloning a giant ape - I can't resist at least drawing attention to such an interesting development.

Various groups are (unsurprisingly) crowing.

You can pay me for the internet searches later :-)
