Questions tagged [clones]

Generally, a clone is grown from a tissue sample taken from another person. Sometimes, many clones are made, while a lot of situations only see one new clone. In some cases, cloning is combined with rapid aging so that a fully grown replica is matured in a matter of days. Also, there can be a facility for memory transfer, so the new clone will start with the same memories and personality of the original.
