Creator of Dolly the sheep knighted

December 29 2007

Creator of the cloned sheep Dolly, Professor Ian Wilmouth, knighted. He said he was happy to award and share it with colleagues from the University.
The world's first cloned sheep was born in Scotland in 1996. She lived for six and a half years and died of pulmonary failure. Scientists have expressed concern that cloned Dolly, has begun the process of premature aging of cells, which caused the illness and subsequent death. After all, these animals usually live 11 - 12 years.
