Let's Clone a Mouse, Mouse, Mouse...

Somatic Cell Nuclear Transfer (SCNT) is a cloning method that involves transferring a nucleus from a somatic cell of the individual to be cloned to an enucleated egg. This activity simulates, step-by-step, the Honolulu technique for SCNT used by researchers at the University of Hawaii. It allows learners to be the scientist and carry out SCNT via paper illustrations.
