Students are required to know the following;
Adult cell cloning: • The nucleus is removed from an unfertilised egg cell. • The nucleus from an adult body cell, such as a skin cell, is inserted into the egg cell. • An electric shock stimulates the egg cell to divide to form an embryo. • These embryo cells contain the same genetic information as the adult skin cell. • When the embryo has developed into a ball of cells, it is inserted into the womb of an adult female to continue its development.
WS 1.3, 1.4 Explain the potential benefits and risks of cloning in agriculture and in medicine and that some people have ethical objections. There are links with this content to Advantages and disadvantages of sexual and asexual reproduction (biology only) and Selective breeding.
