Ectually, (she says, going all British), the recent cloning of the sheep 
in Edinburgh had nothing whatsoever to do with any genome research.  The 
canine genome project, like the human genome project, is aimed towards 
mapping the placement of genes on the DNA chain - *not* with cloning 
animals, or even really with genetic engineering.
