Human cloning. Conceptual image of identical cloned babies crawling across a DNA autoradiogram. The sequence of pink bands on the autoradiogram represents the code contained in the genetic material DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid). This determines the hereditary characteristics of an individual. Human clones are genetically-identical duplicates that are created by transplanting DNA from a template person into an egg (female reproductive cell) which has had its DNA removed. Triggering the growth and development of the egg will ultimately produce a baby that is a clone of the original individual.
