Good news from down under!Tuesday, 8 April, 2008
The Australian Capital Territory has just ruled to allow therapeutic cloning. Which is of course sensible, because that brings it up to where the Federal Government was at in late ’06 – and most states have already done that. So, let’s just see what researchers at one of Australia’s greatest universities, the Australian National University, start doing with this relaxation in regulations.
Obligatory bad news – cybrids (even human-human cybrids) and hybrids specifically prohibited.
If you’re really geeky (like me), you can read the minutes of the proceedings of the Legislative Assembly of the Australian Capital Territory for the 8th of April here.
