What I want to find out:-
1. What is the process of cloning?
2. Disadvantages of cloning?
3. Types of cloning?
4. Materials needed for cloning?
Search engines which I will use:-
Ixquick search results are more comprehensive and more accurate. Ixquick’s unique capabilities include a Universal Power Search, a global search and power refinement. As you search, it has stars which give a rating to the best page, related to your search. Also it includes power search method such as Boolean logic, phrases, wildcards, and field searches. This can help to make your search more specific and you will get more relevant information to what you want. It is known as the world’s most powerful metasearch engine and can cover more of the internet rather than any other search engine. Unlike other search engines, Ixquick does not require the user, to access the power methods in a different way because Ixquick knows how each power search methods, each search engine supports, and how to access them.
Google is a well known search engine which provides the information you want in just a few seconds also it uses advance search which gives you information :-
that contain ALL the search terms you type in
that contain the exact phrase you type in
that contain at least one of the words you type in
that do NOT contain any of the words you type in
written in a certain language
created in a certain file format
that have been updated within a certain period of time
that contain numbers within a certain range
within a certain domain, or website
Google contains special features such as definitions, weather, file types, images, book search, web page translator so you can translate the text and understand it. One important feature which I think is really important is the Q&A which means questions and answers.
MSN Search includes a new search engine, index and crawler; all built from the Microsoft technology. Msn Search uses power method just like other search engines however, you can link to countries and regions to locate information from that particular area. Msn search includes a Search Builder which can focus your search by adding or excluding search terms, also by limiting your search to one or more domains, countries/regions, or languages. The advance search can easily be performed by the search builder moreover a search builder allows you to builds a query string using a set of symbols and keywords. You can build your own advanced query strings manually by using our supported set of keywords and symbols. Search builder is mainly for you to have a limited search and it would make it specific to what you want.
Software Application which I will use:-
The software applications which I will use are Microsoft Word and Internet Explorer. I will use these applications because Microsoft Word is suitable software to write a report in and Internet Explorer is the best to for you to research on topic you want to cover and gives a range of websites which you can use.

“Human Cloning is a term which is used to describe a creation of the genetic material identical copy of a human being or cloned tissues. It is an artificial way to clone someone and the term twin can be used for it”. There are three types of cloning Embryonic, Reproductive and Therapeutic cloning. There many Ethical concerns rising against this scientific theory and still it is not agreed to put this theory into practical.
Process of Cloning:-
The process of cloning depends on the type of cloning, which is being used also there are three types of cloning so there are only three processes. “However, so far the main idea is based on the theory of Dolly the sheep which was the first mammal to be cloned”. The procedure was carried out by removing the DNA from the egg and replacing it by taking DNA from an adult animal making a genetic twin. This fertilised egg is now called pre-embryo and is placed in the womb so its starts developing into a new animal. “Dolly was the first sheep cloned so on the basis of this process scientists are trying to clone a human.”
Disadvantages of Cloning:-
There disadvantages of human cloning such it could cause religious concerns and Issues against god also, the cloned human would have a shorter life Expectancy, the treatment is really expensive, it would differentiate clones from human and finally, there are very few chances of the embryo surviving.
