I was wondering if it was possible to make a clone of a newborn in another being; so that the cells of this new clone, be as old as the original one. Because of what happened with the sheep Dolly, I thougth that maybe this could be a solution. I think that with this, (in the case of a human being), the clone would be only nine months older than the original baby, and not twenty if the mother was this old.

I am very eager to know this. Please answer this question if you know the answer.This is what I would like to study when I go to the university.

Your's truly, Melissa
