Scientists at Work(9 min 55 sec) Planarians have an amazing ability to regenerate lost tissues. In this video, scientists knock out two different genes in planaria to start to understand how the process works—and they generate animals with two heads and two tails!
Clip(2 min) Somatic cell nuclear transfer (SCNT) is performed looking through a microscope and using small glass pipettes to handle human eggs and to remove and transfer nuclei from one cell to another.
Animation(52 sec) Somatic cell nuclear transfer (SCNT) is a technique for cloning. The nucleus is removed from a healthy egg. This egg becomes the host for a nucleus that is transplanted from another cell, such as a skin cell. The resulting embryo can be used to generate embryonic stem cells with a genetic match to the nucleus donor (therapeutic cloning), or can be implanted into a surrogate mother to create a cloned individual, such as Dolly the sheep (reproductive cloning).
