1950’s: Briggs and King report first nuclear transfer success in amphibians. Conclude that using an adult cell to clone is impossible.

1970’s: Developmental Biologist, John Gurdon, successfully cloned frogs using later stage cells. This experiment discounted the conclusion of Briggs and King and raised interest in the possibility of using adult cells in cloning experiments.

3/5/97: President Clinton bans federal funding of human cloning by issuing a five year moratorium.

1/21/98: Advanced Cell Technologies in Texas successfully clone transgenic calves, calves that have been genetically manipulated. The goal is to be able to clone calves that have been genetically altered to produce human pharmaceuticals in their milk.
