The new methods of nuclear transfer in mammals have already provided important understanding of the mechanisms that regulate
development and have revealed new avenues for research and applications in medicine and agriculture. Improvements in the present
low efficiency of the techniques will depend upon understanding the molecular mechanisms that govern gene expression during
development and differentiation.
