Sometime ago I read an article in Discover Magazine entitled "Cumulina and Her 
Sisters".  In the picture, I notice that the coat of the mouse clones is 
different in color as compared to the coat of the mouse nuclear donor.
Is it possible that the recessive gene in the nuclear donor would act as a 
dominant gene in the clones?
