World’s first dog cloned using gene editing is two months old

Long Long, China’s first dog cloned using gene editing, is two months old!

He was born from a surrogate mother on May 26 in a lab in Beijing and is in good shape.

Long Long was cloned using gene editing from the skin cells of another two-year-old dog, Apple.

In 2005, the world’s first cloned dog, called Snuppy, was born in South Korea and named “Invention of the Year” by Time magazine.
