On 5 July 1996 the first cloned mammal was born. Dolly was a female domestic sheep and was cloned from an adult somatic cell using the process of nuclear transfer. The cloning took place at the Roslin Institute, part of the University of Edinburgh by Sir Ian Wimut, Keith Campbell and their colleagues. Dolly‘s existence wasn’t announced to the public until 22 February 1997 and gained much attention from the media with Dolly being called ‘the world’s most famous sheep’. The sheep went on to have six lambs of her own and died in 2003.
