World’s Biggest Cloning Factory Ready To Replicate Humans

18

Boyalife scientist, who is building the world’s biggest cloning facility — 14,000-square-meter — in China’s Tianjin, which is set to go into production within the next seven months and aims to clone one million cows by 2020, says he is ready to clone humans and that it’s not science, but the potential for an adverse public reaction that’s stopping the company from going forward with the project.

“The technology is already there. If this is allowed, I don’t think there are other companies better than Boyalife that make better technology. Hampering such a project are ethical issues so we must practice self-restrained to avoid a possible public backlash,” Boyalife Group CEO Xu Xiaochun told AFP.

Going forward, Xu, who previously worked at the US pharmaceutical giant Pfizer, has designs on reproducing thoroughbred racehorses, as well as pet and police dogs, specialized in searching and sniffing.

Cloning differs from genetic modification, but its application to animals would enable the firm to homogenise its output.

“Everything in the supermarket looks good – it’s almost all shiny, good-looking, and uniformly shaped. For animals, we weren’t able to do that in the past. But with our cloning factory, we choose to do so now. Remember, this is a food. We want it to be uniform, very consistent, very premium quality,” Xu added.

Boyalife is also working with Sooam Biotech Research Foundation, which is currently developing the duplication of deceased pets and woolly mammoths, and the Chinese Academy of Sciences to develop primate cloning. And this would mean just one step further – from monkeys – to human cloning. Nonetheless, Xu hopes that the general public will edit their views and allow the research to push forward.

“Unfortunately, currently, the only way to have a child is to have it be half its mum, half its dad. Maybe in the future you have three choices instead of one. You either have 50-50, or you have a choice of having the genetics 100 percent from Daddy or 100 percent from Mummy. This is only a choice… We want the public to see that cloning is really not that crazy, that scientists aren’t weird, dressed in lab coats, hiding behind a sealed door doing weird experiments,” he explained.

Trying to quash anxieties over the new project and the technology behind it, Xu said, “Clone technology is already around us. It’s just that not everyone knows about it.” He added that many strawberries and bananas sold in Chinese supermarkets were the products of this technology. The process, he said, is just like “pouring a glass of orange juice into another empty glass”, meaning the cloned entity will be identical to the original.

Sooam founder Hwang Woo-Suk, who created Snuppy, the world’s first cloned dog, in 2005, lost his university position, had two major papers retracted, and was accused of crimes ranging from violation of bioethics laws to embezzling research funds.

  1. “The process, he said, is just like “pouring a glass of orange juice into another empty glass”, meaning the cloned entity will be identical to the original.”

    That means the clone will be less. You can only do it so much before something happens. Like profound intelligence drop, insanity, hysteria. Cloning, I think, would only be useful for if you DIE. Even then, we’d need it to be VERY advanced so that YOU come back, and not just a recreated body ready to server like a poorly programed robot or slave.

    • A head transplant and a GE body would be a nice future concept, rather than continuing the old fashioned splint, stitch and suffer routine! really though, one must worry, who is going to be first to skip a few evolutionary stages and create a human with far greater brain capacity and higher evolved senses, must remember, many will never let it be known that any other is better/smarter than them, so creating a person who is genetically superior would prob create more fighting than science fiction.

    • Except it’s more like making copies. You can make as many copies of the original as you want for as long as you can take samples from the original. It’s only when you start making copies of copies that you have to start worrying about degradation.

      As far as cloning yourself after you die… that would require some kind of technology to transfer consciousness. No such technology is feasible, let alone exists. We don’t even have a way to transfer memories so that while it may not be YOU, some version of you will continue to exist. But really, any clone will just have it’s own memories and mind. The only thing of you it will contain is your DNA, so really, it’s more like having a child via asexual reproduction than it being another you.

  2. I can just imagen it after reading what “K” wrote.

    They could make the clones so stupid that they never could revolt, and then swap us out for clones.

    That sounds pretty smart to me, they just need us to not stop it in its tracks before it could be implemented.

  3. @blablablups because DNA has an expiration date, and dinosaur DNA is long past his. and u cant just apply the flawed science u seen in the movie, to nowadays science 😛 Maybe in the future, but not really plausible. best possible way to make one would be to have a way to write your own DNA, like a computer program, and have it implanted. But we aint that far yet 😀

  4. With proper organic, and low antibiotic raising of these cattle, Meat consumption can be safely extended for many. I seriously doubt producers will go organic low/no antibiotic, but if they did, and selectively breed for disease resistance, some wonderful things could be made from this technology…

  5. So, yeah, where do I send the DNA, I have plenty of my wife’s hair. She’s past a few years ago. I would like to make a clone of her, because she was so beautiful. She really loved me, and me her. I am all alone without her. Sometimes I want to just join her, I know she can’t come back, and I know a clone will be just an empty shell, she won’t be alone, with me I won’t go anywhere without her. All I need to know is, how much, and I want her to be 25 years younger like she was when we married.

  6. and the cloned bots will kill kill humans , and choose thr own king and will rule over world . Its simple if a human can think that he/she would be the most powerful and rich thn why not a clone cloned from a richHunger and Selfish human body will not think the same as his Master . And being honest humanity is almost ending . Robonity is moving ahead . As XU said they will lone COWs . This factory is not aimed to help environment and humans . CLONING cow is like Licence to CLONE . Then they will clone humans and the CLONED humans will have a sense as we have . As a human can classify GAY GIRL BOY FRIEND SEXY NUDE CHRISTEN MUSLIM ADVOCATE STUDENT . The same power will have to cloned PERSONS they will not do anything to CLONED robots . And may show down to real humans . As u know Real humans will never consider this . Sooooo they will kill us and we will kill them ..

    (everyone has its own mind and thinking)
    Maybe you are right but its my thinking.

  7. am i a Davidson owner of Harley Davidson MOSSAD secret agent spy at united nations interpol am i us navy ready reserves for life attached to the uss theodore rooseveltcvn71 and naval computer and telecommunications station far east det okinawa japan where i am from if genetics repeats will anonymous help my grandmother reach the age of 103 years old and help my postal worker sister 214781677 i am codeename REDODOD ID#008 214781828 i would like answers to these questions i sat upo the presidents communications when he came to my ship i was on at the time he showed up i was cloned like a cat having kittens 2 lungs operated on chest tubes drainage tubes ventilator tracheotomy still walking 100 miles in 2 days time pulling the uss theodore rooseveltcvn71 with one finger this super carrier weighs 180000 long tons or 2 million pounds rig me with each and every method of christian warfare maritime telecommunications make me the best radioman sailor in gods kingdom one more question is the house of david still alive today genetically speaking as the owners of Harley Davidson do a background check and help me answer a few questions about my life
