Human clone. Conceptual computer artwork of a sleeping woman with a barcode and superimposed binary digits. Binary digits are the language of computers. They may represent the ease by which genetic information can be copied. Cloning is the process by which an genetically identical copy of an organism is made. Several animals, including sheep, horses and cats, have been successfully cloned. The process in humans would be essentially the same, but it has not been performed on ethical grounds.
