First Cloning in the Middle East
Iranian researchers at the University of Isfahan have carried out the cloning of a sheep. The newborn lamb lived only for 5 minutes. However there is no doubt that this is a first time in the Middle East region that local researchers have performed cloning. The research center in Isfahan will continue its activities in this regard according to Dr. Montazeri the director of the center. The project was initiated by Dr. Ashtiani who passed away before seeing its results.
