As a broad overview the cloning team have sourced eggs from say the abattoir, and these eggs have had the DNA removed and then our cell, our transgenic cell is fused with this egg so that the DNA of our cell now becomes the DNA of the egg. And that egg is stimulated to grow and cultured in the lab for approximately 7 days and then is transferred into a recipient cow. And we monitor that gestation or the pregnancy over 9 months, and hopefully we have a beautiful calf on the ground at the end.
