Cloning is the exact duplication of cells or entire plants or animals.
Twins are nature's clones and cancer cells could be thought of as clones -
or cell lines. But entire plants and animals are found in nature only
through the combination of a male and female gamete cell and each is thus
unique. With cloning the resultant progeny is identical in genetic
makeup with the sole parent. Genetic engineering may seem like a very
modern invention using only laboratory techniques. But, in reality,
mankind has selected plants and animals to breed based on traits. This
has resulted in modern agricultural products as well as animal husbandry

Modern genetic engineering techniques utilize naturally occurring enzymes
which have nucleotide sequence recognition and clipping properties.
Techniques also include manipulation of the organelles of cells to transfer
a nucleus or DNA into a target cell. The new DNA then controls the
development of the cell.
