The Korea Times reports on the – evidently unfriendly – split between the US team and the veterinarian, Dr. Hwang, over charges that the Korean team violated ethics standards. The story is similar to the US reports, with a little disclaimer from one of Hwang’s co-authors.
There’s also mention that the rumors have been swirling around since mid-2004 that the human cloning was tainted by (mis)-using oocytes from a young woman who works in the lab. I guess that’s how you get fresh material.
BTW, Time Magazine has named the cloning of the dog the top “invention” of the year, according to Reuters, UK.
