Necromancy in Real Life

November 4, 2008


Japanese scientists have succeeded in creating cloned mice from mouse bodies that had been frozen for up to 16 years. (Health Day)

The first reported clone using animal cells was of a frog in 1962. In 1996, the cloned sheep Dolly was born in Britain. Since then, other animals such as cows and pigs have been cloned, but all of these clones have used cells from living animals or samples in which only the cells are frozen. (Mainichi)
