DNA Cloning yourself

Prior to Dolly, scientists thought if we clone liver cells, we get more liver cells. Liver cells were not going to generate muscle cells. But Dolly's birth showed otherwise ... that adult cells can be returned to their undifferentiated embryonic state and then into a complete new animal!Dolly was the first mammal cloned from a cell from an adult animal. Specifically, Dolly was cloned from udder (mammary) cells of an adult six-year old sheep.
