In 1997, scientists at the Roslin Institute Edinburgh – made history with the first cloned mammal, Dolly the Sheep. Dolly is identical to her mum, because her genes are all clones ( exact copies ) of a cell that came from her mother. Normally, offspring aren’t exact genetic copies of their parents. For instance, your genes contain a mix from your mum and dad, maybe with some variation. Could you imagine a mini replica of your mum or dad walking around? Freaky!“Hello Dolly”
