  Cloning

 

Cloning is asexual reproduction in which an exact genetic copy of another plant, animal or human is made by fusing the DNA from an adult cell into a human egg from which the genetic material has been removed, causing it to divide and grow.  

By definition of the National Academy of Sciences, a clone is an exact genetic replica of another organism.
