Human cloning. Conceptual computer artwork of a construction kit of identical human babies with a DNA autoradiogram, representing human cloning. The sequences of blue bands on the autoradiogram represent the genetic code contained in DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid). This code determines the hereditary characteristics of an individual. Human clones are genetically-identical duplicates that are created by transplanting DNA from a 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.
