ABSTRACT
Wilmut, Ian (1944-) is a British embryologist and genetic engineer who led the team that created a cloned sheep in 1996. Cloning is the process of using laboratory methods to create animals or groups of cells that have exactly the same inherited characteristics. The sheep, Dolly, was the first mammal cloned from an adult cell of another animal, and her birth became known throughout the world as a milestone in cloning.
