Human cloning, conceptual computer artwork. Part of a deoxyribonucleic acid molecule (DNA, down centre), the coded sequence of nucleotide bases that makes up DNA (background), a DNA autoradiogram (across top) and chromosomes (far left and right) are seen. Clones are genetically- identical copies, created using genetic material from a template person. The image could represent the creation of a designer baby. A designer baby has its genetic composition decided upon by its parents, which may endow it with traits such as high intelligence, or remove the predisposition to a genetically inherited disease.
