Human cloning, conceptual computer artwork. Cloning is the process of creating copies of an individual by placing its genetic material inside an egg cell, which then develops into a genetically identical human. The genetic material, in the form of chromosomes (X shapes), is extracted from another cell (top left), isolated (top right) and injected into an egg cell (bottom right). Eggs fertilised like this (bottom left) then develop into identical humans.
