Scientists are defending the controversial subject of sheep cloning, trying to answer the public´s outcry of ´Don’t all sheep look alike anyway?´ Scientist Kevin Sinclair, disseminates the facts and states sheep are different from one another.
“There are different breeds of sheep, just as there are different breeds of dogs...” states Sinclair. For example, there are sheep such as the Finn Dorset breed, as the original cloned sheep was. A sheep might be from another breed such as a Lleyn.
So, why all the fuss over sheep? The first sheep cloned were designed to extract human protein from sheep´s milk as a cure for diabetes.
