Specification requires students to know the following;
In therapeutic cloning an embryo is produced with the same genes as the patient. Stem cells from the embryo are not rejected by the patient’s body so they may be used for medical treatment.
The use of stem cells has potential risks such as transfer of viral infection, and some people have ethical or religious objections.
Stem cells from meristems in plants can be used to produce clones of plants quickly and economically.
•• Rare species can be cloned to protect from extinction.
•• Crop plants with special features such as disease resistance can be
cloned to produce large numbers of identical plants for farmers.
