The clone word derived from Ancient Greek word that’s mean “twig”. In molecular biology, cloning is the process of producing similar populations of genetically identical individuals that occur in nature when organisms like bacteria, insects or plants reproduce asexually. Cloning in biotechnology refers to processes used to create copies of DNA fragments (molecular cloning), cells (cell cloning), or organisms (E.coli, yeast etc). In Livestock farm animals, animal cloning technique will improve the quality of livestock products such as milk, meat, wool and other valuable things. In this article, we are going to describe the techniques such as Splitting off a cell from an embryo (twinning), The Roslin technique and the Honolulu technique, that will improve the quality of farm animals through cloning.
