ABSTRACT
Betsy Dresser, director of the Audubon Center for Research of Endangered Species and a biologist at the University of New Orleans, and her staff members have managed to clone an endangered African wildcat named "Jazz" using techniques never before demonstrated on a wild carnivore in her New Orleans laboratory. The technique involved taking some of Jazz's skin cells, extracting the DNA and using an electric current to fuse the DNA to an egg. They used the egg of a domestic cat and implanted it into the cat's womb.
