BBC News: First monkey clones created in Chinese laboratory (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-42809445)

"Two monkeys have been cloned using the technique that produced Dolly the sheep.

Identical long-tailed macaques Zhong Zhongand Hua Hua were born several weeks ago ata laboratory in China.

Scientists say populations of monkeys that are genetically identical will be useful for research into human diseases."

It's a 20-year-old technique and it took many attempts before it succeeded. So nothing revolutionary, but it's a step forward closer to human cloning. Can't wait to have my own little Spock clone. lol
