I have heard that cloned mice usually become sick really fast and will die very
soon after their birth. Dolly the sheep lived for only 6 years, which is only
half of a normal Finn Dorset's lifespan. Why is that? Would it be due to the
somatic cell nuclear transfer that caused the cloned animals to have some
disease or sickness? Thanks!!
