Mass cloning

Add “industrial-scale” cloning to the list of seemingly impressive Chinese scientific achievements in the past few years. Producing 500 cloned pigs a year in a pig farm in Guangdong, this seems just like the nearby factories except animal life is being made instead of goods. The same company also aims to sequence the genomes of humans, plants and animals, being the world’s largest center for gene sequencing. The objective is to produce better food and improved healthcare, which is very laudable, though not sure about the preserving of “cute” species aim.
