"A cult which believes that humans were first created by aliens claimed yesterday that it had won the clandestine and increasingly bizarre race to produce a human clone. It said a baby girl was born on Thursday from an egg fertilised by a skin cell from her mother.

Brigitte Boisselier, who calls herself a bishop of the Raelian sect, offered no proof to back her claim at a press conference in Florida, but said an independent panel of scientists would be allowed to verify it with DNA tests in the next eight or nine days."

"A former ABC News science editor, Michael Guillen, said during the news conference that he was arranging "independent, world-class experts” to run DNA tests needed to verify successful cloning. Guillen said he was not being paid by Clonaid."

"Guillen, who said he would find experts to perform DNA testing, is not wholly trusted by scientists. In a recent book on "Voodoo Science,” physicist Robert Park -- an outspoken critic of pseudo-science and fakery who is a professor of physics at the University of Maryland and director of the Washington office of the American Physical Society -- said of Guillen: "Although uniquely positioned to help millions of scientifically unsophisticated viewers understand how the natural world behaves, Guillen chose instead to portray the darkest superstitions that beset our species as open scientific questions.”"

"Less than six years after the cloning of a sheep named Dolly, a group claims to have engineered the first cloning of a human being."

"Here are key facts about the chronology of cloning."

Bioinformatics will be at the core of biology in the 21st century. In fields ranging from structural biology to genomics to biomedical imaging, ready access to data and analytical tools are fundamentally changing the way investigators in the life sciences conduct research and approach problems. Complex, computationally intensive biological problems are now being addressed and promise to significantly advance our understanding of biology and medicine. No biological discipline will be unaffected by these technological breakthroughs.
