Human Cloning Update on Hwang Woo-Suk

Remember Hwang Woo-Suk, who got into trouble in South Korea for human cloning?

He was "disgraced" after an embryonic cell line he developed was alleged to be hoax, and after it was revealed that female researchers in his clinic supposedly donated eggs to the cloning projects being done.

Well, it has been reported that Hwang Woo-suk set up Suam Biotechnology Center in 2006 and focused on animal cloning.

An article on DongA.com says:

"At the request of BioArts International, an American biotech company, it [Suam] cloned the pet dog of Orion Group Chairman John Sperling in 2007. The team also cloned the rare Chinese breed Tibetan Mastiffs and 9/11 hero dog Trakr."


So, clearly Hwang Woo-Suk is a talented scientist.
