Cloned dog “the second”!

Autor: fee
I already wrote about a korean sniffer dog which had been cloned due to its outstanding performance. Now, a south korean biotech company (RNL Bio) went on and cloned a Retriever which can smell tumors. The “Mother” was not able to get pregnant anymore, so cloning was the only option to conserve the genetic traits. The 4 dogs were ordered by the japanese stem cell company Seems and have a predicted value of more than 300 000 Euro each. After beeing trained, they will be delivered to Japan, to investigate this property of “smelling” malign transformed cells. Worldwide scientists try to find out how dogs are able to do so. A conversion of this knowledge could result in a completely new method of analysis to investigate tumors.
