Cloned Monkeys – level 3

05-02-2018 07:00

Scientists in China successfully cloned two healthy monkeys using the same cloning method used to produce Dolly the sheep.

In the past, Dolly rose to fame for being the first mammal to be cloned from an adult animal. The macaques are the first primates to be cloned, which is an important breakthrough as monkeys are closely related to humans.

The researchers say that the goal is to clone monkeys for medical research with their main focus initially being on Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases.

Difficult words: macaque (a medium-sized monkey).
