Give the dog a clone: boffins’ auction for copy of man’s best friend
The company behind it, BioArts International, will select the pick of the litter – with just five lucky mutts to be chosen.
The auction, which organizers have dubbed ‘best friends again’, gets underway on July 5 with last bids four days later.
But the competition has been criticised by some ethicists who believe it could lead to human cloning.
BioArts already has experience of the procedure and have copied cats since 1996.
80 percent of cloning surgery is successful.
