    • Bacteria and single-celled organisms can reproduce
      • Form two new individuals - CLONES
    • Plants and Animals reproduce asexually
    • Variation in asexual reproduction is due to environmentalfactors
    • Animal clones occur naturally
      • The cell of an embryo sometimes separate
      • 2 new embryos develop into identical twins
    • Animal clones = produced artificially
      • Nucleus from an adult cell is transferred into an empty (nucleus removed) un-fertilised egg cell)
        • New individual- will have exactly the same genetic information as the donor
    • Views on artificial asexual reproduction
      • Un-ethical?
      • Closely monitored and regulated by the Government
