Scientists from Buenos Aires have successfully completed a science experiment on cloning sheep and its simultaneous transformation of a member of the opposite sex. The researchers believe that this technology in the future will significantly improve animal production.

In the 90 years of science gave the world a new name. Dolly the sheep was the first mammal cloned using adult cells. Almost 20 years later, a group of Argentine scientists made another breakthrough in this field.

"We are talking about animal cloning, as was done with Dolly. But now, a female can get men. And vice versa, "- said the researcher Natalia Kanel.

This design is unique. Methods have been known in the past, but for the first time in the history of the researchers were able to combine them. Thus it is possible to control not only the core embryos and chromosomes.

"One of the possibilities - a movement of sex chromosomes. That is, if we replace Y on X, the male turns into a female "- explained Natalia.

RT crew managed to shoot a lamb named Mateo. With the new development, scientists will be able to create it is almost an exact copy. Their genetic quality will be the same, but the floor will be different. For him, we are talking about the ideal couple, and humanity is a significant step forward in the management of the laws of nature. And it is not known how far it might lead.


The researchers say that their goal is to improve livestock production. For example, a dairy cow with high genetic characteristics can pass the gene to only one cub per year. But if we create a copy of her male breeding increased opportunities for thoUSAnds of sperm.

"In my opinion, it would help to increase milk production in the short term. You will be able to choose the animals capable of producing more milk in comparison with traditional methods, "- said the scientist Daniel Salomone.

These Argentine scientists claim that unlike genetically modified organisms, which questioned the whole world, in this case the animal does not add any gene from the outside, and to manipulate the chromosomes of the same species. But environmentalists are skeptical of this violation of the laws of nature.
