|Nature:||The copying of an organism, create an exact genetic replica|
The art of making a new organism an exact genetic duplicate of a prior organism.
The most basic form of cloning involves creating a fetus with the exact same genetic pattern of their donor. More advance cloning devices involve creating a full replica of the donor's body or their organs. With the first case, the subject is their own individual, while in the latter, the subject is usually a brain dead body.
Mechanoid cloning comes in two forms, CNA (genetic) based and Spark based. With CNA cloning a CNA sample is taken and placed in a solution to create more Mechanical Cells, creating a cloned organism, Spark and all.
With Spark Based cloning, the Spark is extracted and made to split, a similar fashion as to what creates Spark Brothers and both sparks are placed in new bodies. While the second is placed in Protomatter to make a Protoform, the original may be placed back in their original body or a new protoform body. The form of cloning is rather risky and could destroy the spark entirely.
Clones/ clone bodies often have the issue of clones aging faster than the original's. This is due to physical age of the DNA used and The Hayflick Limit, which ultimate affects the life span of an organism. In short, clones will eventually start to age faster, resulting in organ failure and such.
