Nuclear Transplantation or Somatic cell nuclear transfer (SCNT) is a laboratory strategy for creating a viable embryo from a body cell and an egg cell. It is used in both therapeutic and reproductive cloning. The transfer of a cell nucleus from a body cell into an egg from which the chromosomes have been removed or inactivated; the method used for cloning of an organism. Once the transferred genome is within the egg cell and a one-cell embryo is created, the process of cloning is complete and further development of the clone can occur.
