Cloning of Frogs, Mice, and Other Animals

Cloning of Frogs, Mice, and Other Animals

McKinnell explains the nature of cloning, why cloning experiments are necessary . . . and, equally important, what these experiments are not designed for (to create duplicate creatures at will) . . . This is a sensible, responsible contribution to the literature for the layman.

Cloning of Frogs, Mice, and Other Animals

Robert Gilmore McKinnell, Professor Emeritus of Genetics and Cell Biology at the University of Minnesota, began his frog-cloning studies at the Institute for Cancer Research in Philadelphia and at Tulane University. He is the author of a book for scientists, Cloning: Nuclear Transplantation in Amphibia (Minnesota, 1978), and has testified before a Congressional committee -- and Congress’s Office of Technology Assessment -- on the problems connected with cloning.

McKinnell has performed an important service for both scientists and non-scientists in his well-balanced and critical review of cloning, and at an appropriate time when both groups need an accurate account of the applications of nuclear transplantation studies to the biomedical sciences, in order to evaluate the erroneous and exaggerated notions of cloning that have been perpetrated upon the public.
