An Alternative to Cloning


Subject:
Social Issues , Stem Cells

Description:
"Media reports generally mention only two ways to produce human embryonic stem cells. ... In this conversation with Ann Kiessling of Harvard Medical School, NOVA scienceNOW's Kyla Dunn learns about a third and possibly less contentious approach. It has the tongue-twisting name 'parthenogenesis' [when an egg activates spontaneously on its own]." Also includes a discussion of the controversy about research on this topic.
