Goodbye Dolly

Dolly creator Prof Ian Wilmut shuns cloning - Telegraph

"Prof Wilmut, who works at Edinburgh University, believes a rival method pioneered in Japan has better potential for making human embryonic cells which can be used to grow a patient's own cells and tissues for a vast range of treatments, from treating strokes to heart attacks and Parkinson's, and will be less controversial than the Dolly method, known as 'nuclear transfer.'"

The new method sounds very promising, exciting. Will we live to get the benefits?
