Dolly The Sheep.

It's was twenty years this month, since Dolly The Sheep was cloned.

There's been quite a few articles in the press about her.

Dolly was the first ever mammal to be created from an adult cell and she spent the first six days in a test-tube, before being transferred to a surrogate mother.

In an attempt to allow Dolly to have as normal a life as possible, she was allowed to breed and a small Welsh Ran was chosen and they successfully had six wee lambs together.

She was named after Dolly Parton because she was one of an incredible pair :leer:

Yes, I remember reading that she was ageing much earlier than she would have. Does this mean that is you have children late, then they will age fast too?

No they would just age at the normal rate, like every other baby.

Dolly is in the National Museum Of Scotland.

Personally i think it's a bit sick, putting her on display like that.

I bet by now they have found the gene for what makes a clone age so fast and must be able to manipulate it so they could make a clone that aged at a slower rate or an accelerated one.

Do you know what the ramifications of this could be?

There could be an entire cloning factory of dollys ageing super fast and slaughtered for meat.
