Scientists now routinely clone mice, thereby producing genetically identical strains of mice having certain desired characteristics. * Have they cloned any that look like Mickey? But why do they want to do this? By using genetically identical mice in laboratory experiments, scientists can eliminate one source of random variation in their results. Psychologists, for example, are fond of studying how quickly mice can learn to run a maze.

But among mammals that have an extensive period of child rearing and nurturing, the male is usually the bigger and stronger sex.
