Cloning v. Genetic Variations
How does genetic variations passed down from generation to generation
 factor into cloning?  Wouldn't the process be stopped or altered? 
 How would scientists be able to keep the clone from not developing
 the same exact variations so that the species being cloned would
actually help the species continue to thrive without the side-effects
 of  too much "in-breeding".
