In China brought the world's first genetically modified cloned dog

Recent cloning of the realm of science fiction moved into the category of those branches of science which seem to us commonplace. For example, recently that a group of scientists from China managed to clone several pigs. And their colleagues at Sinogene reported that they brought the world's first genetically modified cloned a dog.

The world's First cloned dog belongs to the breed of a Beagle and has already received the nickname LUN LUN. Four-legged friend of man was derived by cloning somatic cells. Recall that when using this method, if to say simple words, out of the cell nucleus "removed" DNA, then with the help of artificial insemination genetic material is placed in the body of the mother, who bears and gives birth to the clone in a natural way.

It is Worth saying that despite the fact that Chinese scientists only the second in the world to introduce this technology (the first was experts from South Korea), Chinese have and what they can be proud of. Their clone is still the first and only, which was removed by knockout of the gene. This is a technique of molecular genetics in which the body and remove or make inoperative the specified genes. So you can "adjust" those characteristics, the development of which is necessary for the future of the clone, and delete «unnecessary».
