News, you must lend your ears upon! We all know that dogs are proven faithful companions that our dear human friends. But the miserable part is they have a short life-duration of 10-12 years and by that time we tend to make them a crucial family-member. As a result, there absence kills us! To do away with the pain involved, world’s first pet cloning service is expected to be practiced by a Korean biomedical company that will offer animal lovers a chance to restore their dead companions. The company called RNL Bio will kick-off this initiative together with scientists to produce the first cloned canine.
RNL Bio has bagged an order to clone a pet dog that would be the world’s first commercial dog cloning in the world. You would be surprised to know that the company is engaged in cloning a pit bull-terrier for a Bernann McKinney, a California-based woman. The process includes taking tissue from her dead pet named Booger and the company is charging $150,000. The cloning would be through by February 2009. Bernann McKinney had conserved the ear tissue for almost a year at minus 200 degrees in a U.S. laboratory. In order to clone Booger, the team involved would be using used cells taken from its ear tissue and insert them into ova that were then rooted into eight female dogs.
