SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 16 /PRNewswire/ — Dolly the cloned sheep was a scientific first, but she’s hardly man’s best friend. According to an exclusive report by Charles Graeber in the March issue of WIRED magazine, right now in a lab at Texas A&M University, the world’s only canine-cloning project is in turbo gear. And if all goes according to plan, as little as a thousand dollars could open the door to keeping Fido alive forever.
Coined the Missiplicity project — named for the beloved mutt of the anonymous San Francisco Bay area billionaire funding the effort — the project involves a high-level team of scientists and researchers who, according to WIRED, are “at the forefront of canine reproductive technology.” “In undertaking the cloning project,” Graeber writes, “Team Missiplicity had to amass an understanding of canine biology far more comprehensive than dog breeders or vets have ever possessed.”
Although a cloned pup has yet to be born, WIRED reports that the team feels enough confidence in the project’s ultimate success, they’re launching the world’s first dog cloning company –http://www.savingsandclone.com — a DNA storage bank scheduled to open for business this week.
In addition to being the first to report the name of this explosive and controversial business, WIRED reporter Charles Graeber takes an exclusive tour of the cloning lab and is invited to observe a cloning procedure — live.
The March issue of WIRED is on newsstands now.
