Cloning is, in theory, a very simple procedure.
Every cell in a mammal's body has the same DNA.
If I extract that DNA and put it into a fertilized
egg of that species, that egg will divide and grow
into a genetic copy of that organism. The
transplantation takes only a few minutes. Then
the egg grows and divides normally. Problems
arise when the egg is removed from the body for
the transfer, then the fetus is typically put back
into the uterus of the mother. This operation
takes several days and is the most difficult part
of the procedure. For example, if you were to be
cloned, assuming everything went OK with the
transfer and implantation and gestation, the clone
would be born in the standard 9 months and grow up
at the same speed as everyone else.
