So while we have a problem of biotech students not getting jobs in Kenya, those in South Korea are cloning pets and other animals to either bring back dead pets alive or to preserve valuable breeds.
Sooam Biotech Research Foundation has cloned over 800 dogs since 2006, offering the service to bring your dead dog back for $100,000. Apart from their popular dog cloning service, they also clone cattle and pigs for medical research and breed preservation.
Are pets worth that much for one to spend $100,000 to get one back? That’s Kshs 10 million.
