Cloning, inbreeding, and history (1997)


Description “The innovative technique of breeding sheep for meat production, which was developed by Robert Bakewell (1725-1795), presents a remarkable analogy [to the recent cloning of sheep], since it evoked a long-standing spectre of consanguineous mating over 200 years ago ... An examination on this analogy offers an interesting perspective on the acceptance of cloning by scientists and the public.”
