Cloning

What are clones? How do they occur naturally? Should we be worried about a real 'attack of the clones'? Join Tim and Moby in this BrainPOP UK movie, as they teach you about the science of cloning! Plus you’ll also learn how farmers have been cloning plants for thousands of years using cuttings, how cloning could affect the way we grow our crops and the importance of biological diversity. In this animated, educational movie you’ll discover the uses of cloning, how it was used to make Dolly the sheep and how we might one day make new versions of extinct animals! Finally, you’ll get the scoop on some problems with cloning, including the ethical and moral questions it raises, the health problems some cloned animals have and the possible threats that cloned species pose to the environment. It’s fair to say that, in this special report, Tim leaves no clone unturned!
