Cloned baby. Conceptual computer artwork of a human foetus developing inside an enclosed chamber, representing human cloning. The foetus is connected to a central supply by its umbilical cord (tube at lower centre to upper right). A human clone is a person whose genetic material, or DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid), is identical to that of another human being. Human cloning is theoretically capable of producing a limitless number of genetically-identical people, by replacing DNA present in a human egg with adult DNA and allowing the egg to develop. Many regard human cloning as unethical.
