The most important conclusions from this scientific overview are that, although cloning procedures for mammals are yielding huge amounts of important scientific information, current procedures are extremely inefficient and result in a high incidence of abnormalities in offspring. These problems severely limit immediate prospects for applications of cloning mammals due to both financial and ethical considerations. Furthermore, cloning does not and will not lead to reincarnation of an animal or person, but rather to a new individual with considerable phenotypic differences from the genetic donor.
