Mice born from Human cell

Human Cell's miceScientists from Rockefeller successfully cloned mice from an adult Human cell. The method was called Nuclear Transfer, sound like some magic word.

“Greco, Guasch and Li compared the cloning efficiency of adult skin stem cells with that of more differentiated skin cells and also with cumulus cells -- the cells that surround a developing oocyte and have traditionally been the preferred cell type for nuclear transfer. The stem cells gave the best efficiency, yielding 19 pups, nine of which grew up into normal, healthy, breeding adult mice.”


Can they clone any other things, like Griffin?
