The objective of this course is the presentation of different multiplication methods (cloning) of embryos and gametes, taking as an experimental model different mammalian species.
However, it considers the possible reproductive and therapeutic applications that the different cloning methodologies may derive in the human species. It introduces two main multiplication methodologies that may imply or not genome reprograming.
Learning outcomes expected to be acquired by the student at the end of the course:
1. Apply the embryo multiplication procedure without reprogramming, assessing the choice of study, techniques, its drawbacks and limitations.
2. Define the nuclear transplantation procedure and its application in the cloning of totally or partially differentiated cells.
3. Apply the mechanisms of dedifferentiation and reprogramming, studying the MII oocyte as an environment of excellence in cell reprogramming.
4. Evaluate the fundamentals and implications of different technologies for embryo multiplication, somatic cloning and gamete multiplication, acquiring critical capacity for the evaluation of scientific documents or social dissemination in the field of cloning.
1. Embryo cloning without reprogramming
