Another Quack and why does AP report this news?
SEOUL, South Korea - A former collaborator of disgraced South Korean scientist Hwang Woo-suk claimed Monday that he succeeded in cloning a female dog after last year's breakthrough of creating the world's first cloned dog, which was male.Note- Dr Hwang Woo-suk is a former Knucklehead winner.
An Afghan hound, named Bona, was born on June 18 using cloning technology, said Lee Byeong-chun, a veterinary professor of Seoul National University. Two more of the same breed were born later, he said. DNA tests showed that the three female dogs are clones, he said.
"This was a process that must be done to see if a cloned dog has reproduction capabilities," Lee told The Associated Press.
Lee was a key member of Hwang's research team, whose purported breakthroughs in creating human stem cells through cloning were found to be fake. But the team's success in cloning the world's first dog, Snuppy, was confirmed.
Lee, who had been suspended from his university for three months over the stem cell scandal, was the main scientist in the dog cloning. He has been on trial, along with Hwang and other former team members, on charges of misappropriating research funds. If he gets a prison term, he could lose his job as professor of the top South Korean university.
Anything Lee claims to have been done should be viewed with great skepticism. Including the above. Once a person is shown to be a fraud, few people will or should trust them. That goes for the MSM also. If it was up to me, I wouldn't be giving Dr. Lee any press unless his work is verified by an independent source.
