 Cloning Cheetah Possible Cloning Cheetah Possible

It is possible to clone animals; however, cloning is a very expensive procedure requiring huge budget allocations and research work, said Dr. Hamid Gourabi, head of Royan Institute.

He hoped animals such as the Asiatic Cheetah could be saved from extinction through cloning. "We have the capability to preserve animal cells to use in cloning later," he said.

In Isfahan, a sheep was cloned by a research group using ewe ovary and ram cells; however, it was difficult to save the cloned animal, Mehr news agency reported.
