Cloning of skin

Recommended Posts

Can anyone comment on the weblink below. Has this any correlation to hair cloning? I am aware that hair is a lot more complex to clone that skin, but it seems encouraging, considering some of the press releases over the last year or so, with Dr Christiano et al.

what do you mean "correlation to hair cloning"?


The paper describes cloning entire individuals using a surrogate egg and stem cells. The premise of hair cloning would be to signal a pre-developed basal skin cell to develop in to a hair follicle. So the premises are different.
