Researchers have cloned monkeys using the same technology as they used for Dolly the sheep. Past attempts to clone monkeys through the Dolly method have failed. Success came from adapting some new techniques. Scientists say monkeys that are genetically cloned will be useful for research into human diseases. But some people are worried about the ethical questions that this raises.

This relates to engineering because they are using science to create something. In the future it could be used to fix problems like diseases.
