Research Statement

Mice can now be cloned from adults somatic cell, but the efficiency is approximately 1-2%, and often show many abnormality in cloned mice. Embryonic stem (ntES) cell lines can be generated from adult somatic cells via nuclear transfer with higher success rate than cloning mice. I am interested how to increase the success rate of cloned mice, why cloned mice showed many abnormalities, and how to use nets cell for regenerative medicine.
