Wilmut had written for us when he was first applying said license. Read his linkurl:case for cloning here.;http://www.the-scientist.com/article/display/15421/ I hope our web experiment on generating discussion for stem cell cloning, which appeared on our website yesterday linkurl:(read about it here),;http://www.the-scientist.com/news/home/53034/ will provide some good questions to pose about the best scientific approach. Obviously reprogramming an adult cell directly (mentioned heavily in the Courant article) is an attractive choice, but it would seem that much of what we need to know about reprogramming the nucleus will have to come from actually observing the nuclear reprogramming that takes place during somatic cell nuclear transfer.
