Dolly was the first mammal to have been successfully cloned from an adult cell. Previous cloning has been from embryo cells. The sheep's birth has been heralded as one of the most significant scientific breakthroughs of the decade although it is likely to spark ethical controversy. Scientists in Scotland cloned a ewe by inserting DNA from a single sheep cell into an egg and implanted it in a surrogate mother. DNA tests have revealed that Dolly is identical to the ewe that donated the udder cell and is unrelated to the surrogate mother.
