A Gene Charter - human cloning, GM food, transgenic animals

Futurist Keynote Speaker: Posts, Slides, Videos - Biotechnology, Genetics, Gene Therapy, Stem Cells

Cloning is just one example of the great power of gene technology, a technology we urgently need to treat or cure diseases such as diabetes, cystic fibrosis, cancer or AIDS, and to help feed the growing world population. However gene technology raises urgent questions of safety and ethics. We urgently need a Gene Charter so that much-needed research can continue with proper safeguards. Such a charter will need adoption throughout the EC and by other nations to be effective.

Cow to give birth to a bison - Hijacking a womb by onother species

Futurist Keynote Speaker: Posts, Slides, Videos - Biotechnology, Genetics, Gene Therapy, Stem Cells

Scientists at Massachusetts Advances Cell Technology (ACT) succeeded in cloning a gaur, an ox-line animal at threat of extinction in Southern Asia. They used the "Dolly the sheep" animal cloning technique to create 81 cloned embryos after 692 attempts using gaur skin cells and cow's eggs. These cloned embryos were then implanted into cows, with 8 pregnancies, five miscarriages and three expected live births. (Guardian 7 October 2000)
