Scientists said yesterday that they had cloned a mule for the first time, raising the prospect that it will soon be possible to produce genetic carbon copies of related animals, including champion racehorses, and to repopulate endangered equine species.

Comment: “This development has potential to repopulate endangered, even recently extinct, species.”
