Iranian scientists claimed on Saturday to have become the first in the Middle East to clone a cow as part of the country's stem-cell research. Bonyana, a male cow, was born Saturday in the central Iran city of Isfahan said Dr. Mohammed Hossein Nasr e Isfahani, head of the Royan Research Institute. Besides its nuclear activity and nascent space program, Iran has sought to highlight advances in other technologies such as cloning and medicine. The government has set a goal of becoming a regional leader in advanced sciences and technology by 2025. Iran announced in 2006 that it had cloned a sheep, and in April, it said it cloned a goat.
