Summary
On January 8, 2001, on the outskirts of Sioux Center, Iowa, the first successful clone of an endangered species was delivered by cesarean section from an ordinary cow named Bessie. Noah, the new-born gaur (a species of wild ox native to India) was created by fusing cryogenically preserved skin cells from a zoo gaur with a cow egg emptied of its DNA. The entire procedure was done without ever coming into contact with a living gaur. This science bulletin asks the important question, "Can technology help save endangered species?
