New Delhi: Scientists at India’s National Dairy Research Institute (NDRI) on Thursday said they have cloned the world’s first buffalo calf using a technique superior to the one used in cloning ‘Dolly’ the sheep.
In a statement, scientists of the animal biotechnology centre at the Karnal-based NDRI said the “handguided cloning technique” was an advanced modification of the “conventional cloning technique” used in cloning Dolly.
The buffalo calf was born on 6 February at NDRI campus.
