Five piglets, named Millie, Christa, Alexis, Carrel and Dotcom were cloned earlier this month at a Virginia Tech University research facility by the PPL Therapeutics, the British biopharmaceutical company that helped to clone [Dolly the sheep]. The first ever litter of pigs follows similar cloning [of cattle, mice and sheep.]

Genetically cloned animals

Scientific success has added to the growing list of animals that have been cloned from adult cells, including Dolly the sheep, fish, pigs, goats, cattle, mice and even an ox-like creature called a gaur.
