Scientists in the U.S. announced today in the journal Nature that they had created the first cloned monkey utilizing the same cloning techniques that brought us Dolly the Sheep (is Dolly still kickin’?) and other engineered animals including mice, pigs, cats, cows and dogs. The monkey is a rhesus macaque and was created (as I understand) from the cloned embryos of numerous rhesus macaque monkeys.

Needless to say, the progression of cloning has far-reaching implications. While numerous countries have legal bans on various aspects of cloning, most countries do not.
