Written by the noted science author Colin Tudge, the book is based on interviews with Ian Wilmut and Keith Campbell, the scientists who cloned Dolly the sheep. Its aim is to explain the story of how and why they came to cloning sheep and the implications for the future, from curing diseases to human cloning. But that's not easy to convey simply, according to Ian Wilmut: The full story is, however, inescapably complicated.

The cloning of Dolly in 1996 from the cell of an adult sheep was a pivotal moment in history. For the first time, a team of scientists, led by Ian Wilmut and Keith Campbell, was able to clone a whole mammal using a single cultured adult body cell, a breakthrough that revolutionized three engineering, genomics, and cloning by nuclear transfer from adult cells-and brought science ever closer to the possibility of human cloning. Written with award-winning science writer Colin Tudge, The Second Creation is a landmark work that details the most exciting and challenging scientific discovery of the twentieth century.

The Second Creation is an excellent place to start if you know little or nothing about cloning. Truly, Dolly has taken us into the age of biological control. Dolly is not our only cloned sheep. If you are already an expert on the subject then you will find the contents rather dull I suppose. Its aim is to explain the story of how and why they came to cloning sheep and the implications for the future from curing diseases to human cloning. But that's not easy to convey simply, according to Ian Wilmut: "The full story is, however, inescapably complicated. The science and technology of cloning, at least by our method, takes us into some of the most esoteric reaches of biology.

by Ian Wilmut, Keith Campbell, and Colin Tudge . Ian Wilmut and Keith Campbell, the scientists who created them both, along with veteran science writer Colin Tudge, hope to persuade you that Polly is far more important. Dolly is the first mammal cloned from adult cells-appropriately enough, mammary gland cells, which is why her progenitors named her after the conspicuously curvaceous singer Dolly Parton. Her existence refutes conventional biological wisdom, which long insisted that once differentiated, a cell could never go back to its uncommitted beginnings and become a different kind of cell.
